The Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar

About the media majlis

The first museum in the Arab world dedicated to the content of media, journalism, and communication.

The Media Majlis is the first museum in the Arab world dedicated to discussing and examining the content of media, journalism, and communication.

The museum is open to all, is free of charge, and is bilingual.

The museum’s exhibitions explore media, journalism, and communication—pasts, presents, and futures—through global, regional, and local/Qatar lenses. This new type of museum is an active space, bringing people together to engage with exhibitions and programs challenging standard narratives, where a spectrum of stories and voices are heard.

Exhibitions aim to empower audiences with a greater understanding and ability to interrogate the constantly changing media and journalism surrounding us all. Featuring extensive digital capacity exhibitions encourage visitor participation, comment, and engagement with rich stories, lesser heard voices, and the people who have and are creating our media world in the region and globally.
