The National Museum of Qatar celebrated its opening ceremony on Wednesday evening, with the country’s leader Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani officially launching its landmark $434 million cultural centre. 

Dignitaries attended including Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah and French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe.

The museum, designed by the award-winning French architect Jean Nouvel, will be open to the public from Thursday.  

The futuristic 52,000-square metre structure, built in the shape of a desert rose, is located on Doha’s waterfront corniche and will be the first notable building visitors see as they make their way from the airport to the city centre.
