This Museum is based in a beautiful building and is extremely interesting, especially for tourists who might not know how different money and banking is in the Islamic world. The staff are hugely knowledgeable and extremely willing to help. And the cafe is a treat!

Staff is very nice and the museum is free. All day long school classes are processed through this museum that is all about money and economics. Not much art involved. We didn´t stay long.

Not a very crowded museum but is a hidden gem in the city. I never thought my kids would enjoy but they did. There are some interactive spots wherein you can learn about stocks trading, inflation and the likes.
