  • The museum is modern, very airy and open inside and has a wow factor. Exposition on Syria was very good, with masterful deployment of video throughout. Very informative. The museum itself is not very rich in exhibits (that's putting it gently) but may be worth a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare.
  • Great place. Had many historical artifacts of Islamic History and culture. Perfect arrangement. Like it. architectural designs of the museum are so nice. Best place for expats to learn about Islamic history.
