Bahrain National Museum
Our tour of the National Museum was very informative. The entire museum is devoted to the history of Bahrain dating back thousands of years. There were scenes depicting life set up for everything from birth and marriage to pastimes and trades. There was a whole section showing all the different burial rituals over the years, this was the boys favorite part. These burial practices included jars that held bodies and the more typical burial mounds that are seen all over the island.
