Visiting the Museum provides a reflection of the rich cultural heritage of the Kingdom of Bahrain. It enhances the visitor's knowledge about the life of the people and development of the country. The experience is really significant and pleasurable.

We enjoyed everything. Staff were very helpful and pointed us to areas we missed to check out. I think the entrance fee is 1BHD, good price for a 30-45 minutes worth of learning and exploring about Bahrain and its cultures.
