Permanent Exhibition at Sh. Salman Bin Ahmed Al Fateh Fort


Designed by the Bahrain based architecture firm PAD alongside the French audio-visual company La Meduse, the permanent exhibition at the Shaikh Salman Bin Ahmed Al Fateh Fort is housed in a free-standing glass pavilion in the eastern courtyard of the historic fort. The pavilion has been designed in a contemporary way, in stark contrast to the historic fort, which is reflected by the glass panels of the pavilion. The project also includes a coffee shop with a terrace overlooking the Wadi Al Hunayniyah as well as a small gift shop.The exhibition counts the history of the Al-Khalifa family through its customs, objects and traditions and is mainly composed of interactive audio-visual exhibits.
