  • Conveys the Islamic approaches for different sciences. Really interesting museum to understand the origin of many theories and things
  • Good exposition of celestial measuring instruments, war machines, surgery tools. However, whole visiting leaves a daunting sense of light propaganda and feels like narration feels hurt because West forgot Islamic science. With all said, as moronic Christian offensive against science war in Europe, Islamic clerics also abominated many of scientific researches, and overall science in Muslim world degraded from mud 14-15 century not because of the West, but because it's inner processes, and still didn't pick up.
  • Got to know a lot about the contributions of muslims towards science and technology.
  • Great collection of Muslim scientists and their contribution to the world. Most of the stuff are original but some are replicas
  • Was pleasantly surprised to see so many great discoveries in the field of physics, chemistry, mathematics, astronomy, medicine etc documented in Arabic books long before any where else. Well laid out museum. Not busy. Entry fee applicable.
