Well organized museum, the impact of Islam civilization in the development of the word can be seen, as well as the contribution of the scientist in the medical and the scientific filed before centuries. It is better to know the opening time through website.

This is a beautiful building, originally a souq, now turned into a museum. It's well laid out with available information. Lots of visuals, timelines, clear explanations. Be sure to get up to the 3rd floor to see the constellations of mosaic in the ceiling.
