The Msheireb Heritage Quarter is home to four new museums in restored traditional Qatari houses, each telling the story of a different aspect of Qatar's twentieth-century history.

Barker Langham developed the masterplans for these museums, on topics as diverse as slavery, oil, and traditional family life. We developed, managed and validated the content, based on our own research as well as the research of a series of academic panels.

The Museums opened in 2015, creating a new focus in the historic city centre.
