Overview

Your day starts with a 9 am pick-up and then off to the Al Fateh Grand Mosque. This is the first mosque in the region to open to tourists and is the largest mosque on the island. The exquisite Bahraini architecture, crowned by the world’s largest fiberglass dome, is one to see. Since the mosque is blessed with tranquility reserved for the holiest of holy places, it is important to dress modestly and remove footwear before entering. Women should cover their head.
The second stop is the Bahrain National Museum for a walk through a wonderful collection of exhibits, from contemporary Bahraini paintings, sculptures and ceramics, to scenes depicting life in the Dilmun civilization of 6000 years ago, and even a reconstructed burial mound, complete with skeleton.
View the beauty of Arabic calligraphy, including a beautiful display of illuminated Qur’ans and other religious documents. Take closer look at traditional trades and crafts, which are cleverly displayed in a reconstruction of a typical souq of the 1930s.  
Then head over to Bait Al-Qur’an Museum, a specialized Museum consisting of several floors and characterized by a most distinctive Islamic design. It houses ancient manuscripts of the Holy Qur'an that have been collected from North Africa, Iran, India, China, and others. It also displays rare great Islamic artifacts, jewelry and gold-ornamented glass utensils, indicating the great Islamic heritage arts that have had an influence throughout the world. 
Give your eyes a break from the amazing displays and sit down for an included lunch. Then get ready to visit the Bahrain Fort, a 16th century fort built by the Portuguese. The area where it is located is known as Qalat Al Bahrain with lots of hidden history of Dilmun Civilization.
Onto the Royal Camel Farm at Janabiya that has more than 400 camels and was set-up by His Highness, the late Shaikh Mohammed Bin Salman Al Khalifa, uncle of the current ruler. You will then be taken to the Burial Mounds Notably scattered along large stretches of Shaikh Khalifa Highway, near the Hamad Town. These archaeological mounds are of great historical importance going back to the Dilmun civilization in the third millennium BC.
