Not many people get to visit this place which has a wide variety of Islamic ancient history laying in its closets. The supervisor is also an excellent gentleman who was very cordial and explanative. It helped us as we went with a group where the leader was an acquaintance of the supervisor.

It was great visiting the Media Museum, they are so knowledgeable about historical happenings, and that they managed to save so much artefacts from the past is even more amazing

There were some very interesting features including models of the early Masjid e Nabwi. If you do not understand Arabic it would be beneficial to have a guide with you to explain some of the features which are labelled in Arabic. It was a relatively simple museum but an interesting one to learn about the early history of the city.

It's better to visit the museum with a guide. It will help you better understand history. It's an interesting place. They should make other museums in Madinah!!

This media museum is located not far from the Haram and is worth a visit early on in your stay in Al Madinah. It gives you an excellent indication of what the old city was like together with developments and the various battle grounds. it places everything in perspective so you can appreciate it so much more. It is free... More
