It is good to go if you want to get some information about islamic religion. They will dress you in abaya (strange feeling) and they will guide you there. I was taken to mousqe. The explained all about the religion. I didn't know about it. They treat you a bit as a someone who wants to became muslim.

The location, the architecture and the isnide cafe/restaurants are good reasons to visit the Center. However, the exhibition is the real value and surprises with a variety and selection that is made to attract and create curiosity about the islamic history and culture.

This place was not designed to be an attraction but because it in the heart of the city it looks so. It a mosque that was built to look like an old building in Iraq calles samiraa.

Wow I didn't know that is certainly the feeling that I left with after visiting as part of their Friday mosque experience. Information boards are educational, interesting and relevant some of today's opinions on the Muslim religion.

Exhibit was well done. Only one floor open. I would like to have someone to speak to during or after the tour.

We didn't go in. From all accounts it is great, however we just loved the view from the outside. The spiral tower is a landmark to enjoy in both day and night, and a bit of a locational beacon when you are in the souq!
