Every year, we invite Culture Pass members to a series of exclusive tours, talks and events to provide a special understanding of what goes into opening and operating a museum or gallery.

Through Mathafek initiatives, we are proud to offer unprecedented access to our museums and collections and to the teams charged with looking after the thousands of priceless artefacts spread across the Qatar Museums' portfolio.

Mathafek is an opportunity for you to see how our pieces are kept and maintained and to experience the working environment of our researchers and museum professionals.
