Islamic Arts Museum is located next to the National Mosque in Kuala Lumpur. The building is white in colour and looks elegant with the green surrounding. It is open daily from 10am to 6 pm.
This museum has 12 galleries to go round in different floors. it is very informative and interesting too. The galleries include architecture, quran, India, China, Malay World, jewelry, textile, Arms and Armour, metal work ,ceramic and wood craft. You need more time here to digest all information.
It also has library, museum shop, restaurant and caters for dining, workshop and seminars. The library has many unique collections of books pertaining to islamic arts; the shop sells books, artefacts from around the world, and others; the restaurant offers food from Arabs and Persians which are good and tasty especially when they are served in the good and cosy environment. I found the galleries, the shop and the restaurant are appealing.
If you want to visit this museum, go to the National Mosque and you will see this museum next to it. For further information click at www.iamm.org.my or phone 603 2274 2020. Happy travelling.
