Following the huge success of the Eid Al-Adha event, Qatar Museums’ (QM) popular and much loved Treasure Hunt is back in time for National Day.

On Saturday 17th December between 12 and 3pm, adults, children and families across Qatar can take part and compete in this fun filled adventure, which will see visitors taken on a unique journey through both the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) and QM Gallery Al Riwaq, explore one of the world’s greatest collections of Islamic Art, discover artworks by internationally-acclaimed Iraqi artist Dia al-Azzawi and take part in a series of challenges. Prizes will be given out to lucky winners at the end of the event. In addition to the Treasure Hunt, a number of activities will be organised throughout the day in MIA park, including story-telling, an archaeology workshop, face-painting and a bazaar, for families and children of all ages to enjoy.
