The museum will be packed full of interactive exhibits, inspiring objects and unique activity areas that invite participation. In addition to promoting the positive value of sport, it will showcase the origins, development and significance of sports culture within Qatar and beyond.
3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum
The 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum, currently in development, will be the world’s most sophisticated museum dedicated to sport. Its team will research, collect and share the story of global and Qatari sport in an engaging, empowering and entertaining way.
The museum features its collection in other parts of the world to create discussion and arranges global conferences on topical issues such as doping control and the increased recognition of women in sport. It recently held a competition for amateur sports photographers and helped set up Run the World, a sports festival for Qatari youth.
3-2-1 will become a widely recognised national and international centre for sports history, heritage and knowledge, promoting and encouraging academic research. It is also a member of the Olympic Museum Network, which currently unites 22 Olympic museums worldwide.
“ We envision the museum as a testament to Qatar’s enormous appetite and enthusiasm for sport and its national ambition for the nation to become more physically active. ”
Building a Local Following
Ahead of its opening, the museum has reached out to residents through temporary shows in venues around Doha, including:
- OLYMPICS - Past & Present – the most comprehensive Olympics exhibition ever organised, which highlighted ancient Olympia, the modern Olympic Games and Qatar’s involvement
- Olympics Through Media – where visitors could discover the way in which the Olympics and the media influence each other
- Arab Games – which highlighted Qatari achievements at this prestigious event
