Mal Lawal 3 Cars

Cars gradually began to have a larger presence in Qatar in the mid-1950s. During this time, cars were mainly imported and acquired with the intent to facilitate everyday life activities. For some, this was a turning point in the country’s social history. 

The excitement generated by the new experiences cars provided was soon transformed into a passion for collecting cars. Many collect cars to document and preserve pivotal moments in the nation’s history, evoke a sense of nostalgia, and establish a collection of exclusive classic cars.

Mal Lawal 3 Cars showcases the private collections of two esteemed Qatari car collectors: Mr Salem Saeed Al Mohannadi and Mr Omar Hussain Alfardan.

The exhibition is open to all!
