The museum complex covers 27,800 sq meters and consists of two buildings. The museum possesses a rich collection of Bahrain's ancient archaeologyical artefacts acquired since 1988, and covers 6000 years of Bahrain's history. This US$30 million complex includes three halls devoted to archaeology and the ancient civilisation of the Dilmun, while two other halls depict the culture and lifestyle of Bahrain's recent pre-industrial past.
