Awesome place. If you are interested in history this place is a must visit for you. Its behind the English school on street 5. The google map took me to a slightly different place but with the help of some locals I was able to find the place. The building is having the clear name "Tareq Rajab museum" written on it. This place is having hundreds and hundreds of artifacts really hats off for the great effort. This museum is among the normal houses so see closely when you are finding the place. I hope it will help the people who will go in the future. Take your time to absorb the rich history of past. I loved this place. The ticket is 2 KD per person.
This is a museum housing a private collection of Islamic Arts and Islamic Calligraphy dating from the early days of Islam to date. It is a must visit for anybody who has a keen interest in Arabic Calligraphy or Islamic Arts. Entry fees: 2 KD for Adults and for Children & Students it is free. Timings: Saturday to Thursday - 9AM to 12PM and 4PM to 7PM. Fridays - 9AM to 12PM. They say photography is not allowed but do allow it with permission. Excellent, well preserved collection of antiques artefacts, hand written manuscripts and Qurans, coins, paintings and embroidered clothing. Some ornate furniture too. Takes about an Hour and half to see.
