In the beginning was the word and this gem of a museum (a twin of the Taeq Rajab museum) shows how the word of God and man is more than a literary device, but a means of artistic expression. Not only this museum houses a kiswa (the covering of the Kaba in Meakkah, but also talismanic shirts, on which the... 更多
Given the Islamic religion not being usually expressed through images of human figures in paintings or sculptures, the beautiful ancient writing of Quran in Arabic became the object of art. The lucky ones could get to truly appreciate different forms of this art from different cultures, times and countries in this beautiful collection. You can also get there by bus... 更多
More than 100,000 items collected over a period of more than 60 years are displayed in this museum belonging to Tareq Rajab and his wife. Large and interesting collections from all over Asia and the Far East. Take your time visiting the museum which is located in Jabriya. The collections are well-organised and it's possible to view everything in one... 更多

A wide range of objects, with the calligraphy museum nearby worth a separate... 更多
Amazing artefacts, especially the fabrics and curtains. Variety of books, carvings, pictures and much more. Very beautiful. Parking is easy opposite New English School if it's not during a school day. 5 min walk from the other Tariq Rajab museum which I would also recommend.
This place is very difficult to describe. Magic of a library museum rolled into one location. If you are into historical writings this is the place for you. Try to come with someone who is well versed in Arabic and even better, someone who knows Arabic history. This can be a movie set it is so nice.
This is the personal collection of treasures of Tareq Rejab, and he really knew the best works of art to assemble. The items come from all,over the Middle East and Asia. You need several hours or even day, to view them all. Don't miss the separate Calligraphy Museum around the corner-- it's included in the entrance fee. A great bargain!
