Reflection in glass

This amazing structure is built on the side of a man-made lake within the National Museum complex and annually hosts a slew of national and international events.

Fortified Bahrain

Some images of the Bahrain Fort – once thought to be once the centre of power for the ancient Dilmun civilisation. Also known as Qal’at al Bahrain, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Originally an Islamic fort, dating back to the 16th Century AD, this was more recently occupied by the Portuguese. The Bahrain Fort Museum showcases archaeological discoveries from different civilisations that successively occupied the site. Arad Fort is more recent, but is nonetheless one of our country’s most important castles. Riffa Fort, built in 1812, is the most recent of the three forts.

Golden Moment

20130206_165842The majestic structure of the Bahrain National Theatre shines as the sun sets over the Arabian Gulf. One of the most beautiful and tastefully designed buildings in the country is located within the Bahrain National Museum Complex and presents a perfect and harmonious venue for the country’s art and history-lovers.
Though only recently opened, the theatre already has hosted some of the world’s leading performers in the field, thanks to the efforts of the country’s Culture Ministry charged with taking Bahrain’s art and culture throughout the world.
