We decided to do a day trip out here on a whim and enjoyed the setting and thought the steel plates were kind of fun too. It is best to go in the winter and you would want to have a vehicle that sits up high like a truck or SUV. The route getting there directly from Doha or Zekreet is easy to navigate with Waze or if you have a good 4x4. It is mostly flat out here but there are some rocky areas and a big curb to get on/off the main gravel road. We saw a couple of sedans trying to drive to the steel plates but we think they turned back because it is quite bumpy on the approach from Zekreet village. We had an SUV with 2 wheel drive and had no issues making it to the installation and we spent about half an hour here driving around.

It takes about an hour to get here from Doha and we spent about an hour in the area driving around and checking out the area. The white rock cliffs are nearby and aren't too difficult of a climb if you're looking for a different viewpoint. It is best to go here in the winter and it should be noted that there are no toilets in the area but you will be about a 15 to 30 minute drive from something.

Approximately a one hour drive from Doha. Roads can be rough. Essentially, this art installation is a collection of steel monoliths in the desert. Not spectacular. No amenities nearby.

It's obvious from the title, but the installation/sculpture lies on an East/West axis. So going when the set is either rising or setting is the best. The scale and setting are magnificent. It's so amazing, like nothing else I have ever seen. This has to be one of the most amazing sculpture installations anywhere.

There is something about this that really connects with Qatar, the desert, and the whole Arabian experience.

Just a suggestion; get picked up or dropped off at the "Mall of Qatar". It will save you some time in traffic. I'd much rather be speeding along underground in a spacious, and spotless subway than dealing with traffic. The installation is way outside of Doha, but if you use the subway you should be able to fit this into your schedule.

NOT TO BE MISSED!

There are four "monoliths" in the middle of the desert about an hour and a half from Doha, to get there it is better to go by 4x4. The site has nothing close to it, although at least there is a "road"/track (it leads to a resort that is under construction) with solar lights that takes you closer to the place, and then you have to leave the track and walk about 500 meters. m through the desert

A beautiful public art sculpture in the middle of nowhere…. Qatar is not just luxury malls, it’s an Art center with beautiful museums and public art.
This particular series of sculptures are located about an hour from Doha, and it’s certainly worth the drive…. It’s very unique and in a personal level to me it meant that Qatar is all the way in the East and while aspiring to get to the West they say not so fast…. Qatar is not Dubai!!! It’s an elevated experience and if you stop here stay for few days to explore the city and the countryside… we had a fantastic time

This art in the desert is fantastic! It consists of four massive weathered steel slabs, positioned amidst desert bluffs, stretching a kilometer from first to last. It says something to every person, but that artistic statement will probably be unique to every viewer. I visited it in April, and would love to see it at dusk, at sunrise, is a dust storm or in the very occasional rainfall; I’m sure it would reflect different perspectives! Amazing art by Richard Serra, who is also the artist of “Seven” behind the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, both well worth a visit.

A four big iron sticks in the middle of the desert. Those sculptures are made by Richard Serra. To him, the content of the work derives from interaction with the viewer, meaning he always has pedestrians in mind. He acknowledges that he can't predetermine what people will make of it.
Very short visit.

Firstly, these are very impressive structures in the middle of the desert, quite hard to find and a sturdy off-roader is required. Despite this, this installation is obviously not meant to be seen as we were constantly harassed by security. They came to say wear masks (apart from security I think we must have been the only people for 5km in either direction) and not to play with the sculptures (they are metal plates?) Impressive structures, just not for the public to see.

Around 75km from Doha you really need a 4x4 to see the sculptures and surrounding area safely. Around 5 minute drive off road pass Zekreet village stands the Richard Serra installation. These are impressive monolithic slabs of iron in a fascinating surrounding rock landscape. It was extra enjoyable as all graffiti had been recently completely removed so they stood in their majestic rusting beauty. As always when you get into the countryside and near the coast you appreciate the fresh air away from Doha. It’s still only 1 hour drive from Doha on the new freeways and in my view well worth a trip out. Better to take a guided tour but it is still safe enough in a 4x4 without too arduous conditions. Nice beach at Zekreet to turn the trip into a nice day out.

We went there with a groups of people, driving all the way for almost 2 hours from Doha. To be honest, nothing impressive us just a 4 big giant brick stick in the sand.
If you have nothing to do then why not.
But definitely I will not go there again
