Sight Description

Beit Al Qur’an which means the House of Qur’an in Arabic is a multi-purpose complex dedicated to the Islamic arts and is located in HooraBahrain. Established in 1990, the complex is most famous for its Islamic museum, which has been acknowledged as being one of the most renowned Islamic museums in the world

Beit Al Quran (House of the Quran) is a rather unique museum. It is dedicated solely to the Quran and to works of art inspired by the Moslem holy book.

The museum has a distinctively Islamic architecture, with the walls inscribed with Arabic calligraphy. Many of the copies of the Quran you will see here are works of art in themselves – ranging from an ornamented 12th century Persian masterpiece, to a gold-lettered, eight-sided 16th century edition.
