According to IN-Q Enterprises General Manager Phil Lawrie, the Qatar Museums edition of the Monopoly board game is a popular gift item, which displays many of Qatar’s treasured cultural destinations, public art and heritage sites. The board game enables Qatar Museums to take the learning experience beyond the walls of venues and the #PassGoQatar Monopoly Challenge aims to inspire residents and visitors to explore more of Qatar’s distinct landscape, visit historic buildings and enjoy the country’s passion for art and culture.
The Qatar Museums edition of the Monopoly board game was developed in 2018 by IN-Q Enterprises, Qatar Museums’ commercial organisation. This iconic product enables players to compete by trading places of interest around Doha. It is an ideal gift for residents or visitors who enjoyed exploring the destinations featured on the board game.
