This Museum reminds me of the Getty in Los Angeles - spectacular location, grounds, design, organization. But the displays themselves leave something to be desired. If anything, I was more impressed by the WAY the items were displayed - the tall glass cabinets, the ambient mood lighting, the clear descriptions. Some of the jewel-encrusted knick-knacks and colorful carpets were beautiful, and I was fascinated by the temporary exhibition of the restored paintings and the accompanying film. But for the most part it's hard to feign prolonged interest in endless displays of korans and weapons. That pretty much sums up the museum's contents - indecipherable scribbles and rusty guns and swords. As with many museums, I end up staring at the other visitors or wondering about the lives of the guards in each section.
