“Amazing museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

This place is a MUST see!
It is spectacular and very rich in objects. It gives the public and very good view of Islam's history in terms the historical and archeological knowledge available.

One will definitely learn more about Islam in general and the development of the religion in Asia.

“Absolutely loved it! Must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

The physical space was lovely and very calming, the staff was very friendly, the curation was educational and the contents were beautiful. It was also a great respite from the heat while waiting for the National Mosque next door to be open to non-Muslim visitors.

“first rate as good as advertised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Extremely difficult to find if you're coming from the bird park so suggest you get there by taxi. It's extremely elegant, lots of marble but the exhibits are excellent starting with the models of famous mosques throughout the world and continuing with lovely exhibits of beautiful clothing and jewelry and pots and, and and...again, we spent an entire afternoon here including a very delicious (especially the hors d'oeuvres) lunch in the restaurant.

“Good collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

Modern building and good collection, but no guidance. Admission about 12 RM alright for tourists, but locals were complaining. Across the road is National Mosque
