Islamic Arts Museum, Kuala Lumpur Reviews - Write a Review

  • I loveeeeeee this place. Great place to go for all Muslims for the history. And everyone else for the Malaysian history. It's pretty cheap and great. The place is clean and there's 3 floors of historical goodness. I highly recommend this place. And I would actually love to come again.

  • Impressive and gorgeous exhibits, friendly staffs, cool facilities like Fountain Garden, Auditorium, Museum Restaurants and Shops. Galleries are very informative and rich in culture. Entrance fee is a quite cheap but subject to 6% admission fee.

  • I absolutely LOVED this museum!! It was incredible! There are 12 galleries with beautiful and exquisite exhibits. The exhibits range from ceramics to metal work, calligraphy to pottery/ ceramics and best of all an Islamic book binding exhibit that was absolutely incredible. I was here for 1.5 hrs and could have easily been here for much longer. There is a gift shop/book store that is also quaint and wonderful

  • Love all the collection..makes me realizes how beautiful Islamic art all over the world. Lot's of good photo spot!

  • A must go place for people who appreciate art and history. The museum shop is the best place to grab some excellent souvenirs.
