Are there special offerings for teachers?
Teachers will appreciate our exciting range of art, culture and heritage books suitable for the classroom or school library. We offer a wide range of beautifully illustrated children’s books on Qatari traditional culture and local wildlife. Qatar Museums also publishes catalogues on objects and paintings of historical importance, Arab modern art and exhibition catalogues featuring globally important artists. Teachers and other educators are invited to participate in our ever-popular DIBF events, including panel discussions, art workshops and book talks/presentations.
What about families and children?
We offer many books just for kids. We have beautifully illustrated children’s books featuring local wildlife such as dugongs and caracals. You can also buy books introducing key aspects of traditional Qatari culture, including Garangao, a children’s holiday similar to Halloween. Families are also invited to participate in art workshops and storytelling sessions organised by the Museum of Islamic Art, the National Museum of Qatar and the 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum at our dedicated children’s activities space.
