Neatly kept and aesthetically pleasant, the museum aptly shows the country’s rich Islamic heritage. There is excellent maintenance of the numismatic section (coin study and its viewing methods), the brass instruments for astronomical exploration are glittering, and the methods for lift irrigation and the Quranic exhibits are flawless.

However the following administrative areas deserve more attention: there should be only a nominal entry fee and the provision of water dispenser at the reception counter and visitors should not be provided separate sanitary footwear for entering the museum. It will also be very nice if preserved skeletal specimens of birds and animals are kept at the museum. Moreover, the authorities must also liaise with universities and research centres to continually improve the museum and keep adding important artefacts to it.
