He said that providing resources that encourage society to stay inspiring and active, even while at home, embodies the mission of the Museum. He expressed hope that the public would enjoy the online resources and benefit from them, and looked forward to welcoming the public to the new Museum when it opens next year.

It also aims to preserve the history of sport, from its inception to the modern era, making it accessible to Qatar residents and visitors. The museum is also a member of the Olympic Museum Network, which currently has 22 Olympic museums worldwide.
