A Great New Museum



y


Last week I visited my 99th country: Qatar. The highlight for me was a marvellous new museum which despite only being open since December 2008, , must surely rank as one of the world's great museums. It is the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha. Designed by Chinese-American architect Leoh Ming Pei, it houses the biggest collection of Islamic art in the world.
