There is a special kind of place. A place we usually go to on a school trip, often visit as tourists when traveling to other countries. We know they’re important, but often don’t visit them in our own hometowns.

Museums are meant to make a community.

They are a non-profit institution built to preserve our culture, to share it with us, to provide us with means of discussion and reflection on who we are. With our guest Safa Arshad, we’ll find out what the museums of Doha have for us to learn.
