    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    The cubistic pyramid form of the Museum of Islamic Art, which rises out of the creamy turquoise waters of the Persian Gulf. Visitors can admire the puritanical Islamic absolute monarchy cherishing tradition, while embracing modernity to become a Middle East Goliath. The museum's collection includes manuscripts, metalwork, ceramics, jewelry, woodwork, textiles, coins, fabric, and glass collected since the late 1980s. MIA has an exceptional collection of rare gold and silver coins, which gives a captivating insight into the lives of Muslim peoples from the 7th century. MIA has some of the highest-quality of glasswork from enameled glass, in its multicolored grandeur, to gleam and even simpler cut and molded pieces ever produced in the Islamic world. The collection has over 800 manuscripts from Qur’ans from the 7th century to Ottoman works of the 19th century.
