Fabulous private collection beautifully displayed. Our guide walked us through the entire building explaining the different types of clothing and weapons. Well worth a visit.

Use GPS to get there. Billy easy to find. Should be allowed to stay in the US you should have no problem finding a place to park. There is a small entrance fee. Enjoy

There is a gift shop in Bait al Zubair. They have nice souvenirs which are nicely packed. They have variety and small items are reasonably priced.
