The energy playground will be sponsored by Total to chart Qatar’s journey with the oil and gas industry.
An ‘Energy Playground’ is set to open at the National Museum of Qatar [NMOQ] in 2022 that will provide a unique experience for families to learn more about energy and the history of Qatar’s oil exploration.
The playground will be designed for families to engage in intergenerational kinetic play activities, enabling a “choose your own adventure” industrialised experience, and will ultimately expose visitors to the future of renewable and non-renewable energy.
Ahmad Musa Al-Namla, CEO of Qatar Museums, and Laurent Wolffsheim, Total Qatar Country Chair, signed the agreement during an online ceremony on October 1, 2020.
“In 2022, the Energy Playground will be an exciting space for families to learn more about the fascinating history of Qatar’s oil exploration in an immersive and fun setting,” Al-Namla said.
Qatar’s energy sector has played an integral role in the country’s development, and this growth has been supported by a longstanding partnership with Total and France, which is celebrated through the 2020 Qatar-France Year of Culture.
The narrative of Qatar’s energy sector is an ongoing theme explored across galleries at NMOQ, which highlights the country’s journey with the oil industry topics and its impact on socio-cultural development.
Laurent Wolffsheim, Managing Director of Total E&P Golfe and Country Chair, said: “Our presence of over 80 years in Qatar is reinforced through the Energy Playground, a place where families can come together to cherish and embrace the vivid past and bright future of energy in Qatar.”
