The Bahrain National Museum

Bahrain’s history can be traced to the ancient Dilmun civilization. Little wonder, it has one of the most interesting museums in the region. The Bahrain National Museum showcases archaeological finds and Bahrain’s pearl diving history, and offers a fascinating introduction to the sights and contemporary culture of the island. Understandably, it’s one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country.

Visitors are welcome (except during prayer times) and informative guides will explain aspects of Islamic faith while pointing out special features of mosque architecture.

Intriguing and mystical, the Tree of Life stands alone in middle of the desert. It is believed to be over five centuries old, surviving without a known source of water – leading many viewed it as a natural wonder.
