Things To Do

Dadu Children’s Museum of Qatar

A cutting-edge museum dedicated to children is set to open by Qatar Museums in 2026. Luckily you don’t have to wait until then – enjoy a great day out at the lush Dadu Gardens.


Dadu Children’s Museum

Dadu invites families to be part of a journey of learning through play. Inspired by building blocks, Dadu will feature a stunning exterior of interconnected blocks circling the museum's covered foyer. It will be a place that nurtures children's creativity and imagination with galleries, restaurants, cafes and activity rooms. In the meantime, explore the interactive Dadu Gardens – a ‘living classroom’, bursting with fun for kids 11 years and younger.

Creativity as a mission

The goal of the museum is to nurture children to be future leaders and caretakers of Qatar, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030 visions and goals. Dadu Gardens is located in the heart of the International Zone at the Expo 2023 Doha and highlights the themes of sustainability, the green economy, healthy habits, and the environment. Under the theme: Gardens’ Adventures, Dadu Gardens offers a range of activities designed to engage and educate children, fostering their development through play and interaction with nature.

The green lungs of the Children’s Museum

At Dadu Gardens, visitors can explore water features, edible and community gardens, a mud kitchen for messy play and an amphitheatre. Look out for The Promise, a public art installation by the artist KAWS, and Garden Atelier – an indoor/outdoor space that hosts cooking workshops and events. The Permaculture Showcase is the beginning of what will eventually become Doha’s first City Centre Food Forest – an area dedicated to showcasing permaculture in action. Note: all adults must be accompanied by a child under 12 years, while children need to be accompanied by an adult above 18 years.
