Know More About Bahrain National Museum:

The Bahrain National Museum was officially inaugurated by the late Amir H.H. Shaikh Isa Bin Salman Al-Khalifa on 15 December 1988. It was considered one of the finest museums of its kind in the Gulf region. Today, the Bahrain National Museum is one of the island’s main cultural landmarks.

The museum's rich collection of ancient archaeological artifacts and natural history specimens covers nearly 5,000 years of the history of Bahrain.

Exhibitions focus on the ancient civilization of Dilmun and the culture and lifestyle of Bahrain's pre-industrial past. Notable collections include the Durand Stone, a basalt sculpture from the Babylonian era, as well as Quranic manuscripts and historic documents. The museum also collects work by Bahraini contemporary artists. The museum aims to enhance the understanding and knowledge of Bahrain's history as well as promote a global culture within the local community.

The Museum is the repository of 6000 years of Bahrain’s history. The story of Bahrain comes to life in the Halls of Graves, Dilmun, Tylos and Islam, Customs and Traditions, Traditional Trades and Crafts, and Documents and Manuscripts. The exhibition halls, located on the ground and first floors, are accessed by the grand foyer, a large dramatic space accented by shafts of natural light, which hosts the exhibition, “Investing in Culture”.

The exhibit focuses on artifacts and the history of the Dilmun civilization from 5000 BC to 400 BC, including its widespread trading network with Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley. On display are Dilmunite stamp seals, artifacts from Barbar temple and Saar Temple, and Dilmunite pottery. A notable exhibit is the Durand Stone, a long black basalt sculpture dating back to the Babylonian era. Another feature is a tableau which depicts a scene from the Epic of Gilgamesh (in which reference to Bahrain is made as to the paradise of Dilmun).
