Must do if you love the Quran

Not a very large museum. Can be done in two hours. Worth a visit even for non Muslims as it has a lot of beautiful calligraphy work.

Beautifully showcased historic Quran's and art artifacts. This represents a very valuable collection worth seeing. Located in Manama so easy to get to. Entrance is free but a donation is welcome.

This museum can be hard to find, but it is an absolute must for visitors in the region. The exhibits are stunning, and one could probably spend hours here.

A small reconstructed are of the original gate into the city and a portion of the old market nestled in the mayhem of the modern souq. You'll find anything and everything in the souq.

Even if you are not religiously inclined, this is nevertheless a fascinating museum of one mans collection of Holy Qurans and Calagraphic writing instruments. The Quranic verse inscribed on a single grain of rice is quite remarkable as too are some of the beautifully crafted manuscripts.

This museum is dedicated to the history of Quran "Muslims Holy Book". It hosts variety of rare scripts dating back to the 300 Hijri year.
