The much loved and extremely popular ‘Treasure Hunt’ organised by Qatar Museums (QM) is back for the Qatar National Day celebrations, the event was extremely successfully on the occasion of Eid Al Adha.
The treasure hunt event is being organised on December 17 from 12 pm to 3pm in which adults, children and families from across the country can take part.
During the event visitors will go through both Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) and the Qatar Museums Gallery Al Riwaq and get the chance to see the best of Islamic art firsthand and also witness the artworks of renowned Iraqi artist Dia al Azzawi. A series of challenges will also be part of the initiative, the winners of which will be rewarded at the end of the event.
Other fun activities such as storytelling, archaeology workshop, face-painting and a bazaar for families and children will be organised throughout the day in the MIA Park in addition to the main treasure hunt event.
“The last treasure hunt event was an immense success and we received very positive feedback about the same from the community and we are really excited for the second treasure hunt event on the national day weekend and hope that it would be successfully in equal terms”,
Khalid Yousef al-Ibrahim, chief strategic planning officer at Qatar Museums, said.
There are limited spaces for the event and they tend to get sold quite fast, QM has said. Entry for a group of 5 people costs QR50 and can be bought from MIA Gift Ship, QM Gallery Katara, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art Gift Shop, or In-Q at The Gate Mall.
The event is part of QM’s and MIA’s strategy to inculcate the knowledge of history and traditions in the most playful manner possible and at the same time stimulate creativity in the younger generation.
