Cultural Tourism


In celebration of Muharraq’s beautiful past and present, the Bahrain Authority for Culture & Antiquities, launched the second edition of the “Cultural Tourism Passport”. The guide-like document features a map detailing 18 of the city’s most iconic and historical landmarks, monuments and cultural sites, which passport holders can “tick off” by receiving a stamp from staff when they visit each of the attractions.

Those who complete the journey by visiting all of the 18 sites will enter a raffle. The Cultural passports can be picked up from Al Khalifiyah Library, Archaeologies of Green Pavilion Expo Milan 2015 or Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Centre for Culture and Research.

Similar to a passport, the holders will have to fill in their personal details, nationality and CPR number if applicable to participate. After visiting all the locations, passport holders have until November 30 to submit their completed document to Bahrain National Museum reception. The raffle will take place at the Arab Regional Center for World Heritage in Manama on 18 December 2018. The competition is open to both Bahrainis and non-Bahrainis.
