Holy Quran Exhibition

Saudi Arabia

The highlight of this exhibition, which explains the context and historicity of Islam's holiest book, is a collection of nine original Qurans, the oldest of which is a copy dating from around 1563, with the most beautiful an ornate two-centuries-old copy. The exhibit also has useful videos dubbed in English, but is dominated by wordy placards. Popular with large pilgrim groups, it can get a tad noisy.
