Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser opens Msheireb Museums in the Heritage Quarter at Msheireb Downtown Doha
Msheireb Properties, a subsidiary of Qatar Foundation, marked the official opening of Msheireb Museums at Msheireb Properties’ flagship project, Msheireb Downtown Doha (MDD) – the world’s first sustainable downtown regeneration project, located in the heart of the capital.
The event was attended by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson, Msheireb Properties, Eng. Abdulla Hassan Al-Mehshadi, Chief Executive Officer, Msheireb Properties, and local dignitaries, VIP officials and guests of honour.
The opening of Msheireb Museums represents another key milestone in the development of MDD and marks the completion of the first phase of its Heritage Quarter. Consisting of four restored historical buildings, the Museums are part of the wider regeneration of the inner city to revive the old commercial center, recreating and modernising traditional Qatari life based on community, commerce and a sense of shared destiny.
A specialised team of leading local and international architects and experts have overseen the restoration and preservation of the four historical buildings. The Heritage Houses – commonly known as the Bin Jelmood House, Company House, Mohamed bin Jassim House and Radwani House – have been restored and converted into four culturally significant museums using carefully sourced materials that retain the spirit and building techniques of the original structures.
