Replicas & pictographs of mosques from across the world are on display. Also of particular interest in this museum is the section on science & technology which displays the various scientific tools & machines which were used by Arabs in earlier times in warfare, industry & agriculture. Particular emphasis has been placed on water drawing techniques in the arid Arab lands.”
