A visit from the President of the Republic of Brazil
President Dilma Rousseff was given an exclusive tour of the permanent collection at the Museum of Islamic Art. She was enchanted by many individual pieces present in the collection.
Her visit comes in the midst of our Qatar-Brazil Year of Culture and its accompanying celebrations. We've brought the taste of Brazil to Doha through many activities and celebrations; the most recent being the Brazil Festival.
Brazil has also hosted a myriad of activities and celebrations showcasing Qatari art and culture, the most prominent being the Pearls Exhibition that visited Brazil earlier this year.
We were honoured to have President Rousseff sign the MIA visitors book and hope to welcome her back in Qatar and Qatar Museums soon!
Whether you are in Brasilia or Doha make sure you share your own Qatar-Brazil experience with us on our social media hub!
