Two kids play areas opened at the National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) earlier this year.

Now one has been sponsored by Nakilat.

The Nakilat Adventure Ship Playground is inspired by the celebrated Qatari pearl trader Erahma Bin Jaber and his famous Ghatrousha – a type of dhow or Qatari boat.

Also, Nakilat’s Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard in Ras Laffan is also named in honour of the maritime leader.

Ahmad Al Namla, CEO of Qatar Museums, said: “We are excited to welcome Nakilat onboard as the Patron Sponsor of the Adventure Ship Playground. As global leaders in the maritime sector, it made perfect sense for Qatar Museums to partner with a local enterprise that continues Qatar’s maritime legacy.

"Through the Nakilat Adventure Ship Playground, we have recreated longstanding traditions that have shaped Qatar’s heritage and culture. The
playground invites children and families to reconnect with the country’s fascinating roots in an immersive and fun way.”

Children visiting the playground can learn about sailing, pearling, fishing, trading and other maritime occupations and practices that were once common in Qatar.

Through storytelling and songs, cargo and treasures, and other activities, youngsters can reconnect with their national history.

The Adventure Ship Playground was unveiled at NMoQ in February alongside The Cave of Wonders, a playground designed to resemble a dahl or cave, with rays of light beaming through openings in the structure’s roof.

The ‘Cave’ features glowing rocks, and recreations of nationally important relics, including the Al Jassasiya rock carvings and other archaeological finds.

The playgrounds are open at the same time as the museum. For more information visit visit.qm.org.qa and www.nmoq.org.qa/the-park.
