Interesting examples of very rare manuscripts from differrent parts of the islamic world from 700 til today. If you know about calligraphy and have a knowledge of the Arab world you should not miss this place

“Amazing !!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

This place has a large collection of the holy Quran dating back to many centuries and counties. It's not a large area so should be a 1 hr visit max. Photographs are not allowed due to the sensitive nature of the preserved text. But a wonderful experience to see ancient arabic calligraphy..

Located in downtown Manama, the Qur'an museum has many Qur'ani artifacts dating back centuries. The guides are very knowledgable. It is worth a visit.

“Best museum displaying the Koran”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2013

I was astounded by the number of Korans on exhibit, from ancient to current times. The lighting is beautiful and provides for optimal display. This museum is well laid out and a real treasure for visitors to Bahrain.
