Museum of Pearl Diving
The compelling past of this island nation is represented at the
Museum of Pearl Diving, constructed in 1937 and one of Bahrain's
most impressive and significant buildings. The museum was the first
official centre for the Bahrain Courts, with four Supreme Courts.
In 1984, the building was declared a Traditional Heritage Centre.
Various aspects of life in the pre-oil period, such as pearls
diving gear, national costumes, local musical instruments and
archive photographs, are currently exhibited at the museum.
