Media Majlis-First Media Museum in the Arab world


Welcome to the first media museum in the Arab world.

The Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar is a museum dedicated to exploring journalism, communication and media. Through exhibitions, publications, programs and online resources we engage with themes that connect audiences to an ever-changing media landscape. Our interactive exhibition space uses digital technologies to challenge standard narratives and provide 360-degree views on global, regional and local stories. We aspire to represent the diversity of voices, perspectives, events and people that contributes to the evolving media world that surrounds and affects us all.

As a museum they believe there is always another side. The Media Majlis is an active space where visitors can participate, comment and engage. They do not simply collect and commemorate media and journalism in its physical forms, they create opportunities to explore and interact with its content and messages. Their exhibitions are a place where visitors can interrogate and be inspired by all forms of media, challenging preconceptions, delving into the why? and to what end?, not just the when? or the how?

Since opening to the public in spring 2019 the museum’s exhibitions and programs have explored discussions ranging from the portrayals of Arab identity in film, to the changing uses of media in social change and by those who aim to bring issues and social awareness to wider audiences, and how smartphones have impacted journalism and the newsroom.

The museum is located in the Northwestern Qatar building in Education City. Inspired by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, The Media Majlis is a central component of Northwestern Qatar, its educational mission and building.

The Media Majlis is open to everyone—its presence extends Northwestern’s commitment to deliver a holistic education and to provide a site for learning and enjoyment for all residents of and visitors to Qatar.

The museum is open to the public from 10am–8pm Sunday–Thursday. Closed on Friday and Saturday.
