Ethnographic Museum

Doha's Ethnographic Museum, also known as The Wind Tower House, is housed in a traditional Qatari building built in 1935. The building itself is a fascinating attraction complete with a wind tower, sometimes known as a badger, which directs the wind into the main museum creating a cooling effect. This architectural design was once a regular feature in most houses throughout the country. The museum contains an informative selection of exhibits about the way Qataris have lived, their cultural heritage and the traditional lifestyle of people throughout the region.
