It is good. but i felt like it has less exhibits than it should. They will be having different exhibits time to time like theams. i do visit regularly as its near to my place. if you are traveling, i would suggest you to visit once, and come with moderate expectations.

This museum is located in a beautiful building. On the third floor you will find several scaled models of mosques around the world, including Mecca. Furthermore there are several relics of the past in mint condition. All together it gives a little insight in the Islamic world
