Museum of the Prophet

Museum in Mecca

Hajj and umrah pilgrims flock to this privately owned museum dedicated to study of the Quran, the Prophet’s life and his Hadiths (traditions). The museum features a scientific examination of Muhammad’s life, and there are also displays of utensils, furniture and weaponry used by the Prophet. Be sure to allow plenty of time to take in the collection, particularly the several versions of the Quran.
