Beit Al Quran Tours

The Beit Al Qur’an (House of the Quran) is dedicated to Islamic heritage and the understanding of the Holy Qur’an. Housed in a building based on the 12th-century Al Khamis Mosque, with its engraved Qur’anic verses and slender minaret, here you’ll find an impressive collection of Qur’ans and other antique manuscripts, showcasing a stunning display of calligraphy.

Visiting the Beit Al Qur’an provides an insight into Islam, and Kufic script in particular. The museum is spread across several floors, with exhibits well-labelled in both English and Arabic. There are also some rare Islamic artifacts on display, plus jewelry and beautifully decorated glass utensils that illustrate how Islamic heritage has influenced art all across the world.

The best way to visit the Beit Al Qur’an is as part of a larger day tour where you can explore  the most famous attractions in Bahrain, including Al Fateh Grand Mosque, the Bahrain National Museum, Bahrain Fort, the Royal Camel Farm, the Burial Mounds and Manama Souq.

Insider’s Tip: Keep an eye out for the miniature Qur'ans, the smallest of which is from 18th-century Persia and measures just 4.7 centimeters by 3.2 centimeters.

Practical Info

If not arriving as part of an organized tour, you can drive to the the Beit Al Qur’an by taking the Sheikh Hamad Causeway to Road No.1901. The main entrance and car park are on the southern side of the building at the back. All visitors should dress conservatively.
