Modern building and good collection, but no guidance. Admission about 12 RM alright for tourists, but locals were complaining. Across the road is National Mosque

Thank Babar A

Lovely place and shows a lot of Islam art, but seriously, this place needs TLC. Such a waste.

The 3D displays of mosques across the world. The building is stunning, and the cafe and shop are also exceptionally high quality. Entry price was very good value, we spent an intriguing couple of hours and would thoroughly recommend a visit.

The exhibits were wonderful! the Aga Khan temporary exhibit just added more depth to an already good museum. For one who reads all the exhibit summary and details all artifacts were well described and the summaries were very informative. The actual artifact description could have been a little more precious in identifying the style/ type of work.
We had wanted to try the Cafe but it was closed for a private event. The gift shop was very good.
