In an old Islamic madrassa, earlier this year a museum of Islamic calligraphy and prayer beads was opened.
It was one of the oddest museums I ever went to. There was nobody there but the staff, only new (but high quality) prayer beads. No explanations, history, information on use or materials. Just lots of eye candy.
