The museum of Islamic Art is a beautiful building full of many great pieces of art including an area of "marvellous" creatures that come from many of their stories and the nice touch is that this museum is free to get into. If you, as a lady, are not dress modestly they do have a scarf you can borrow to cover up with. I happened to have a pair of pants with me so I just changed over once I got there.In the marvellous creatures exhibit there is a kid area with 3D versions of some of the creatures and a place for the kids to create their own creatures or recreate some that they have seen. Another thing I noticed, especially in this area, is that the museum employees several woman. This is something that is up and coming in Saudi so it was really nice to see here in Qatar!
One of the amazing pieces was a fully intact chainmail armor set for the knight and the horse!
A cool towel to clean up before your meal.
White glove service!
Gold flakes on top!
The kids thought it was so neat that they were able to eat gold!!
We left with bellies full, mouths full of delicious flavors, and smiles on our faces!
Note to parents- never let the age of your kids or someone else's idea of what your kids should and shouldn't be doing (ie, the security guard at the elevator) stop you from experiencing life and all it has to offer!!! And just when you think you know what your kids can handle, sometimes they surprise you! Just like mine did today! Go out and seize every opportunity you can! Live life to the fullest!
