Art Center


The Art Center was opened in May 1992 by the Ministry of Culture. It houses a number of halls which host a number of cultural activities and functions in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The Art Center provides a range of local, regional, and international fine arts experiences through its annual program, enabling Bahrainis and residents to discover fine arts works from the Arab world and beyond.

In parallel, the center also hosts a wide variety of cultural functions, ranging from musical performances, poetry recitals, lectures, and photography exhibitions.

The Art Center reflects the country’s keen interest in fostering and developing culture and the arts movement in Bahrain. These efforts have provided an enabling environment which has contributed to proliferation of the fine arts in the country.

The center is open to the general public in the morning from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm and in the evening from 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm from Saturday to Wednesday, except when there are official holidays.
