Built in the late 19th century, Barzan Towers, also known as the Umm Salal Mohammed Fort Towers are near DFC. The nearby Barzan Olympic Park contains recreational grounds, restaurants, a kids zone, two football pitches, two tennis courts, a basketball court, mosque, swimming pool, cycling track, fountains & walking lanes. Visitors can take in the stunning architecture within the Education City complex, home to well-known international universities and research centres. Farther afield is the Al Shahaniya Camel Racetrack, where visitors can catch the races from November to February. For an experience and a museum in one, Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum is just the ticket, with a vast collection of artefacts from the Jurassic age to the present day.
