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

The schematics of the famous... More

The musem has a lot of things to see and read though they are not classified and arranged well. Just like we were lost into a warehouse full of antique stuffs that we couldn’t have an image of anything about what the whole exhibition is all about in the end.

The museum though located very close to the Masjid Nabavi is hardly recognizable from outside and is in a basement. A documentary is shown inside as well as the museum has layout of the Prophet's original home, the burial ground and the city of Medinah during the old days.

Both Makkah and Medina have museums, a little bit out of the way. In the case of Medina Museum you have to cross a treacherous carriageway, where the traffic will not stop for you and there are no traffic lights. My life flashed before me several times as I crossed the road to get to the museum. This was my... More
