We enjoyed the art of the Museum of Islamic Art. Many fine exhibits of special items. Like the every day items showing art as it was used. Great explanation of the art in English and Arabic.

I was thoroughly captivated by the displays and the manner in which the history of the region is captured in both museum sites. The stunning architecture of the modern museum is amazing and the displays priceless.
