The National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) is inviting vintage car owners and collectors to showcase their collections at the Mal Lawal 3 exhibition.

Under the patronage of Qatar Museums (QM) Chairperson, HE Sheikha Al Mayassa Bint Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, and in collaboration with Mawater Center, the highly anticipated exhibition is set to take place in the last quarter of 2020 at NMoQ.

Mal Lawal, meaning ‘from the old days’, is an exhibition that showcases collections by private collectors in Qatar. Items presented in the exhibition may include manuscripts, weapons, Islamic collections, maps, coins, ethnographic and heritage items, jewellery, clothing, accessories and cars.

Interested car collectors are invited to submit a portfolio by the end of July 2020 which includes:

  • Short description of selected car(s)
  • Images related to the car(s)

NMoQ Director Sheikha Amna bint Abdulaziz bin Jassim Al Thani said the Mal Lawal 3, which will be hosted at the NMoQ, will exhibit and reveal a unique insight into private collectors and the stories their collections carry. Vintage cars are amongst several types of collections that the Mal Lawal exhibition will feature.

Mawater Center Director Salim Saeed Al Mohannadi said they were thankful to NMoQ for the opportunity and cooperation, to document the history of the cars of the people in Qatar.

Mal Lawal 3 is the only event of its kind in the region and acts as a platform that brings together private collectors, helping support the practice of collecting in Qatar. The collections that will be showcased in 2020 will present the personal stories of collectors and highlight their passion for art, culture and heritage.
