7th July 2016 - Bahrain National Museum
I love museums of all kinds and this National Museum is a must-visit for all those who appreciate art and are passionate about knowing more about the early civilization and history of a region.
This museum claims to be a repository of 6000 years of Bahrain's history. It is open for the public from 8 am to 8 pm every day and the entry cost is 1 Bahraini Dinar for non-citizens. This is the main cultural landmark of Bahrain which showcases:
- Art galleries
- Dilmun (one of the oldest civilizations in the Middle East)
- Customs and traditions of Bahrain
- Tylos and Islam
- Trades and crafts
- Documents and manuscripts
On this day, I got to know that F also likes to "actually" take time at each counter and read the descriptions and notes. It is imperative to visit a museum with a partner who shares the same love, else he or she will be on your toes to hurry up and all you will do is skim through the pieces and exit without enriching your knowledge.
End of Day 2.
Day 3 was the best of all because I got to have the best breakfast!
