Beautiful building and a great little museum. The guide was fantastic, friendly, approachable. She was happy to answer any questions put to her. more »
I spent a little over an hour here and I read almost everything. Was warmly welcomed by the lady who sold me my ticket. Being from SA, I appreciated that the museum recognised the Afghan cameleers. And I enjoyed the section of well known Australian Muslim's and some of their item's on display. I liked that sections of the Quran were written down and part of the exhibitions.

Never had a chance to visit during my stay, but it easy to locate the museum !
