“Excellent Museum - a must see”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

The exhibits were wonderful! the Aga Khan temporary exhibit just added more depth to an already good museum. For one who reads all the exhibit summary and details all artifacts were well described and the summaries were very informative. The actual artifact description could have been a little more precious in identifying the style/ type of work.
We had wanted to try the Cafe but it was closed for a private event. The gift shop was very good.

“Worth Visiting”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

Interesting exhibits and fair entrance price. The model mosques of the world was the highlight. It's within walking distance to the National Mosque, so visitors can go to both places in one shot.
