OPENING SOON

 

Creating Opportunities

The museum showcases its collection in other parts of the world to create discussion and arranges global conferences on topical issues, such as doping and women in sport. It recently held a competition for amateur sports photographers, and helped set up Run the World – a sports festival for the Qatari youth.

It will be a widely recognized national and international centre for sports history, heritage and knowledge, promoting and encouraging academic research. 3-2-1 is also a member of the Olympic Museum Network, which currently unites 22 Olympic museums worldwide.

Building a local following

Ahead of its opening, the museum is reaching out to residents through temporary shows in venues around Doha. Themes centre around the cultural phenomenon of sport, and include the Olympic Games, as well local and international sports events that occur in Qatar. Highlights include:

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.

We envision to establish 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.
