“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Located in downtown Manama, the Qur'an museum has many Qur'ani artifacts dating back centuries. The guides are very knowledgable. It is worth a visit.

“Best museum displaying the Koran”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

I was astounded by the number of Korans on exhibit, from ancient to current times. The lighting is beautiful and provides for optimal display. This museum is well laid out and a real treasure for visitors to Bahrain.

“Really interesting for a couple of hours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

This is a well laid out display of Korans from all ages. It is easy to find but hard ot park and depite having lived here for 10 years I still arrived about an hour before midday closing with myt guests. THere are no English signs outside the place butif you follow the signs it is the only possible placeit could be. Lots of fascinating old Korans and lovely freindly staff. Good for a morning - sorry can't remember the wierd opening times.
