₦155.6Billion Museum With Roof Made Of 76,000 Panels Opens In Qatar(Pics)

It took almost a decade to build, was finished three years late and cost £330million ($434 million) – but Qatar’s vast national museum is finally open.

It resembles a cluster of flying saucers, though its design was actually inspired by a desert rose.

The new National Museum of Qatar, which was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, features a multi-curved flying saucer style roof.

The entrance includes 114 fountain sculptures in a 900-metre-long (2,950ft) lagoon and the museum’s multi-curved roof is made up of 76,000 panels in 3,600 different shapes and sizes.

Inside, there is more than 1,500 metres (4,920ft) of gallery space.
