Doha's Ethnographic Museum, also known as The Wind Tower House,
is housed in a traditional Qatari building built in 1935. The
building itself is a fascinating attraction complete with a wind
tower, sometimes known as a badger, which directs the wind into the
main museum creating a cooling effect. This architectural design
was once a regular feature in most houses throughout the country.
The museum contains an informative selection of exhibits about the
way Qataris have lived, their cultural heritage and the traditional
lifestyle of people throughout the region.
Address: Grand Hamad Street
Opening Time: Open from 9am to 12pm (Sunday to Tuesday); 3pm to 6pm
