    We went last week, I think the exhibition is until April? Its £12 entrance for adults if its very busy they may stagger the entrances with time slots. I would recommend it, I went with my kids so not enough time or *silence* to get into it properly lol but its really amazing mashaAllah they have some beautiful exhibits and have doen it really nicely. No photography is allowed (it ends right in the museum shop where they sell the pics how handy!?!) I loved the entrance itself when you walk in, its almost like a tunnel and along the side wall (it curves) there are images of hajjis and you can hear labbayk allahuma labbayk as you enter really beautifully done. They have covering fo the Kaaba/ its door from different years. They have relics like compasses/ qibla compass, they have information and artifacts from famous Muslim explorers (Zheng He!) so not just dispolaying the 'Arab/ Asian' side of Islam which was nice to see. There is a short movie clip you can sit and watch, lots of models of the majids and areas...a lot to look at and so many non Muslims attending it, which was really nice and they seemed amazed and in awe at the beauty of it all subhanAllah!.

    I don't think so, there is a short clip shown unfortunately I didn't get to see it all. Theexhibition is as long as you want! Some people walked through it quicker than others, I would say leave at least a good 45 mins to see it all, maybe longer if you like!
