If you are travelling to Bahrain with children, visit Al Areen Wildlife Park & Reserve to see indigenous species in their natural habitat. It was originally created for rare Arabian animals, including the oryx, adax and reem gazelle – all of which still call this fascinating space their home.
Once you have explored the great outdoors, immerse yourself in traditional culture at Bahrain National Museum, a waterfront building where waves leap up to the windows. Here, you can soak up the country’s history and marvel at artefacts from the Dilmun people.
You can also wander through historic castles dotted all over the country, and be sure to stop by Al Fateh Grand Mosque. With a capacity for over 7,000 worshippers, it’s the ideal location to enrich yourself by learning about Islam. To discover local craftsmanship, make your way to any of Bahrain’s art galleries, such as the Al Riwaq Art Space and Bin Matar House.
