    Sunday through Thursday there's a free hourly shuttle to/from the Museum of Islamic Art, on the Corniche in the city

    The nearby VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University) also has a small gallery, but until the trams are finished it's almost impossible to get there from here...

    Lovely space. A bit isolated location wise so make sure you have a cab # for a ride back!

    Avoid unless there's an exhibit on. Permanent collection is small and blah; pieces are unmarked/labeled and hard to identify. Poor signage. Nobody at reception. Gift shop pricey but interesting.

    Go to the city gallery and check out the 'villages under the wings of silence' painting - truly captures the muted voices of Arabs
