I could easily spend 2-3 hours here to go through all the artifacts. I love the ambiance. There's also a nice Cafe on the ground floor for cup of coffee. The place is much more interesting if there's an exhibition ongoing.

They have scale models of various types of mosques from different countries which have their own style of building. They also have textiles, calligraphy, paintings, furniture jewellery. The gift shop is so great, it's like a gallery itself. I'd definitely go again.
