Cultural Crossings: Cultural Crossings is QAIC’s flagship program that aims to celebrate the transmission of culture along the Silk Road routes and highlight the living cultural traditions that continue to be expressed around the world today. Historically, the Arabian Gulf sat at the crossroads of both land and maritime trade routes, dating to the earliest iterations of the infamous Silk Road over 2,000 years ago. This exhibition highlights the overall legacy of this network as it brought more than just physical materials – it also allowed the transfer of ideas, religion, knowledge, and a multitude of numerous other aspects that make up the modern-day culture of the regions.
Perfumery Museum: The Perfumery Museum is a journey for the senses and an introduction to the history, science, and stories behind the craft of perfumery through time and the world. Hidden inside an intimate chamber within the Qatar America Institute for Culture (QAIC), the Perfumery Museum is both an educational museum and interactive exhibit telling the story around the strong cultural ties between fragrance and society. By visiting this space, you will discover perfumery’s opulent origins as a symbol of luxury and how it has grown into a multibillion-dollar industry. Equipped with this new knowledge, test your senses at the scent strip station and learn about how some of the most notable fragrances of ancient times came to become the phenomenon they are today.
