  • Decent but Small museum of Antiques. Free Entry. Very well kept and presented with all the exhibits neatly labeled in English n Arabic. Can be visited within 30 to 45 mins max., so well worth the visit...
  • Great events organized by Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiyyah, an organization dedicated to the preservation and sharing of knowledge related to Islamic ancient and modern history
  • Nice place ... Well decorated. But un interesting history
  • The quality of the exhibit is impressive. The English is superb. There is plenty of information to take in about what they have on display. The galleries themselves are quite small and two hours should be more than enough to see everything. Sometimes the progression seems a bit haphazard. Only real complaint: the sound on the videos they had about the works were turned down so much a few of them were inaudible.
  • Has an excellent pre Islamic Art exhibition. Also houses a children’s library and offers many programs for children and adults.
