  • Rotating exhibits along side the main floors. Very interesting. The building is bigger than it looks from the outside. Excellent coffee shop for food. Great views across the bay.

  • It's unique setting , the lovely architecture and the sea view that makes it amazing. The careful design invites you to explore more. It's even nice just looking outside and walking around the area...

  • Fantastic museum. Great display of Islamic History. Favourite part was the Turkey section as it resonated with my culture. Lovely cafe where you can sit and enjoy the view of the dhow boats. Very nice Masha'Allah.
