I had impression of it being a traditional museum.. Instead it was like a guided visit into islamic history with beautifully crafted models.. The visit was in form of groups, with guided tour nerrated in Urdu, English and Arabic.. A must see for visitors

This museum is excellent place to visit to learn about history of Makkah and Madinah. The tour guide communicates in English or Urdu. Make sure you go right time for the right language. I definitely recommend going here. Hope to go again
