Well laid out museum which we could visit over and over again and still not take it all in. Only minus is that the restaurant is closed on a Monday. Close to the national mosque.

“Beautiful and illuminating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

A beautiful place to spend a few meditative and enjoyable hours reflecting on the wonderful diversity of Islamic culture. Some absolutely gorgeous items, and a great ceiling in the open hall. For westerners, a great place to challenge many current perceptions of Islam.

Love it. Quite informative about Islamic arts. It will be great if they can add more attraction like Souq.

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

A huge collection of art pieces from the Muslim world. Definitely worth seeing if you are in the right frame of mind. It's a nice respite from busy city life and offers and nice glimpse into the culture and heritage of our Muslim neighbors. The museum is kept well.
