This Museum was opened by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Alkhalifa on the 45th Anniversary of the Bahrain Defense Force, which occurred on February 5th, 2013. The minute you enter the museum you’ll be taken by awe at the rich history that it displays. The museum is divided into five different sections (The Hall of Rulers, Forts Hall, Documents Hall, Horses Hall, and Old Weapons Hall). If you start with the Hall of Rulers, you’ll go through the history of how Bahrain was conquered by Sh. Ahmed Al Fateh (Ahmed the Conqueror), and you’ll find a map of the battles that took place at that time. All of the museums halls display progression of Bahrain’s military throughout the little kingdom’s history.
