This is a must see as it has many relics and illustrations of the history of medina. Puts a lot of things into perspective. Very easy to find.

It's a worth visiting place for historic information. It's better to follow a guide lead group with understandable language. The garden at back has separate entrance and an entry ticket.

Very nice, simple , historical. The lighting & presentations are good, staff are polite & helpful to the visitors. The only noise made is by the visitors themselves. It will be worthwhile to provide clear advice to visitors for no noise & no photography.
