It offers an easy guide to World religions using visuals, models and artefacts without going into many of the divides that have arisen throughout history in each - e.g. the Great Schism in the Catholic/Orthodox religion or the Sunni/Shia divide in Islam. In the gold mosaic part... More

With a satisfied stomach I made my way through the Museum, first the movie than the rest. On the internet the visiting time is... More

This museum is one of its kind in the world and definitely worth a visit. It is especially eye opening for westerners who were only exposed to monotheistic religions and have an opportunity to widen their horizons and see there's a huge variety of cultures and religions around the world.
