The Museum of Islamic Art was modern, interesting and has English descriptions. I liked how it was separated into time periods and you could see gradual change in the art over time.

This is a very nice building right located right on the water close to the port. It has a nice park outside too. The building is big and they have a restaurant or coffee shop inside.

The museum is a beautiful modern building. Everything was well displayed, labelled and accessed. There is a very nice cafeteria which overlooks the bay, very light and airy. Service was very efficient and decently priced. Very well worth a visit.
