Nothing like a little history to end this Eid holiday on a high
We checked out all the museums and heritage sites still open this Eid-al-Fitr, so you can end the holiday with a look back at all of the island’s culture and heritage.
1. Bahrain National Museum
The island’s most iconic museum will be open from 9am – 8pm, so grab a camera and check out what’s on display! Entry is also free until the 22nd, in honour of International Museum Day.
2. Bu Maher Fort
Built in 1840, this fort was once the gateway to and from the sea as well as the main fishing harbour for locals! We can’t get enough of it.
You can check it out from 9am – 4pm!
3. Tree of Life
The Tree of Life, or Shajarat-al-Hayat, is over 400 years old and a huge tourist attraction – because no one knows how it survives in the middle of barren land.
4. Arad Fort
Throwing it waaay back to the 15th century, this local fort used to guard a separate island of its own! It’s open only on the last day of Eid from 12pm-5pm.
5. The Post Office Museum
Directly behind Bab Al Bahrain, the museum is home to an archive of vintage photographs, stamps, and more.
It’s open on the last day of Eid from 12pm – 5pm.
