This traditional house, built in 1905 in the heart of Muharraq, was saved from demolition by the Sheikh Ebrahim Centre for Culture and Research. Once the home of a pearl merchant, and later a clinic of Dr Bandar Kab, a renowned physician in the 1940s, it has been reinvented as a museum devoted to the history of pearling and a gallery displaying contemporary art.
