Description

The Exhibitions on Buildings of Two Great Harams is a museum located approximately 10 minutes from the Masjid al Haram by vehicle, and is a must-visit museum when in the city of Makkah. Although not one of the most popular attractions in the city, due to the fact that government permission has to be obtained prior to visiting it, it is definitely well worth the effort. It is best to get a tour guide to make the arrangements as only groups are generally approved to visit the museum. The museum features the historical heritage of Islam and its building is divided into 7 halls, with each hall housing different aspects of Islamic heritage. Visitors will be able to see a miniature replica of the Haram, before and after its expansion; they can also see a copy of the Quran from the time of Othman Bin Affan and various other interesting historical manuscripts, documents and antiques from the past.
