    Nice children library, free arts & crafts classes on weekends. Pretty nice collection of books too but unfortunately not for loaned. Clean and modern surrounding. One of the best KL attractions.

    Great museum, but as you go thru the collections ask why for items brought from Indonesia they rarely mention the name of the country (Indonesia), but only Cirebon, Aceh, Minang, Yogya, etc??? Unfair!

    Near the National mosque is this museum devoted to Islamic arts, which is the largest in the world. Has artifacts, jewellery, artworks, and a comprehensive library. Open from 10 am to 6 pm.

    Impressive collection! From Qu'rans to keris knives, veils to vases, IAMM shows the diversity of Muslim culture. Discover the influence of Islam on textiles, clothes, architecture, and even science.

    Haven for a history buff like me. Very thorough explanations and very vast amount of collection. Too bad there are no guide who can answer questions and a lot of lights are broken.

    Much better than National Museum, which seems like a joke in comparison. The amount of precious artifacts is staggering, from various ages and all over the Islamic world. Serene & beautiful.

    The auditorium is a great event space. Looks like it fits up o 300+ ppl. Stage is huge and they have house lighting and projector, need to get a good clicker though.

    Worth to visit (and I'm a picky person), especially for non Muslim who are interested to get to know a bit of Muslim culture. Well organised and structured.

    The most beautiful museum in Malaysia! Please visit the Scholar's Library as this library is also the most beautiful library in Malaysia. :)

    This is probably the most quiet and empty place in Kuala Lumpur but it is underestimated. A great place for arts lover.

    The Museum Of Islamic Arts is set close to the National Mosque. It contains one of the world’s best collections of Islamic art.

    Ever wondered why there are no human figures in Islamic Art? Why is repetition so important? See Islamic art better with your ears. Download audio guides from

    One of the best sights in KL. Afterwards get tea at the Colonial Cafe, skip the museum cafe.

    Всем арт-директорам, дизайнерам и каллиграфам - обязательно к посещению! Еще вкусная еда(особенно после малазийской:)). Пароль от вай-фая в ресторане "islam2020". Кофе восхитительный.
