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
Mr. and Mrs. Rajab did an amazing job of gathering (and then protecting) hand-made beauty when others didn't care-- their work would simply not be possible anymore. Beautiful, sense-rich glimpse into a world that few people know about-- even, sadly, most young people in the Middle East. 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!
There are two museums in one! The Museum is divided into two parts calligraphy, manuscripts, miniatures, ceramics, metalwork, glass, jade-, wood- and stone-carvings in one and in the other objects that were produced in the Islamic world during the last 250 years, i.e. costumes, textiles, jewelry and musical instruments. It's stuffed with an amazing collection. Well worth at least one... 更多
Even for those like me that can't read Arabic script, the collection that ranges from ancient to (almost) new and from books, textiles, paintings, to stone works is absolutely amazing. I don't think there is any place in the world where you can see more of the famous and highly valued Kaaba hangings and curtains together under one roof. Exhibits... 更多
