The BNM is a small, but well designed museum. It is the best way to get a brief, overall view of the history of the country. It is well maintained and offers regular special exhibits. Best deal in town at .500BHD or approx. $1.35. Down side--no guided tours and no one to ask questions of if you have a question about an exhibit. All said, if you visit Bahrain and have only 1-2 hours BNM is a great way to spend it.

Free entry, few other guests around, easy and pleasant to wander through the extensive exhibits in a beautiful -- and beautifully maintained -- building with a stunning ground floor made up of a huge aerial map of the island that is Bahrain. Not the most modern museum displays, but well-done displays nonetheless. A very thorough view of Bahrain's past. The huge new National Theater is under construction next door, which will make this more of a destination. Still, I would rate the museum a must-see destination for those who can see Bahrain as more than a place to relax from Saudi Arabia's restrictions.

This is a really good anthopological museum. It's a must see as a first stop to understand the ancient history, culture and anthropology of this country. Really well done.
