During this Eid-Al-Adha, children across Qatar took part in a fun and exciting treasure hunt at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA).  

This fun-filled family adventure, which was held on 14th September, forms part of Qatar Museums’ and MIA’s continued efforts to provide dynamic activities that appeal to diverse communities, fostering an indigenous culture of creativity and innovation. 90 children and families from across Qatar attended the treasure hunt. During the hunt, children were taken on a unique adventure through the museum, where they explored one of the world’s greatest collections of Islamic Art. Prizes selected from the MIA gift shop were awarded to three lucky winners with the highest scores.

This event was a great success, and it was a pleasure to see this event resonate so well with the local community.”
