Hall of Traditional Trades and Crafts

A major marketplace since the Bronze Age, Bahrain maintained its thriving commercial role through to modern times. The display recreates a traditional Bahraini souq, revealing its bustling atmosphere and highlighting local craftsmanship. The display also elaborates on the pearling heritage of Bahrain. Throughout the centuries, the island of Bahrain has developed a socio-cultural system based on pearling. The latter has shaped life on the island for several millennia.
