About Aga Khan Museum, Toronto
This Islamic museum showcases artefacts from the entire range of Muslim culture and history, from the 8th t0 21st century, from Spain to the Far East. It’s not a large collection, but it is precious, with manuscripts, ceramics, drawings, paintings, decorative pieces, calligraphy, and scientific achievements. The most popular item is probably the page from the Blue Quran - gold script on indigo paper. The architecture of this building designed by Fumihiko Maki deserves a mention for its outstanding use of natural light that uses the building’s own textures and shapes to cast striking animations and patterns. The park outside is a nice place to stroll.

Aga Khan Museum, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
Best museum to visit!!! I would most definitely go there again!!! I recommend this way more than the ROM or any other museum! It is family friendly and really focuses on the Muslim history. The best part is the second floor where the art and ancient pieces come to life (not literally). But my favourite part was the park. It is beautiful in all seasons! The tickets are worth way more than they are! Please visit the Aga Khan Museum whenever you can!
The exterior and grounds are the most interesting part. Thankfully its free to enter the grounds. Well-manicured and clean. The museum is overpriced for what it actually is. Very little on display and half of the space is off limits for visitors. Have to scan your ticket at every room. Felt very unwelcoming and uptight.
I think that the museum achieved its purpose which was to educate ignorant people, such as myself, to the very significant contributions to science, art and philosophy made by Muslim culture over the past centuries. The building and grounds are very inviting and the folks who you have contact with are all very helpfull. I believe much of the staff are volunteers. Entrance pricing, parking and tours are all reasonable with lots of special discounts if you check their website. Needless to say, the grounds are most attractive in warm weather.
Very well maintained. A bit expensive. $20 entrance. $10 parking. $10 printed guide. Not really big. About 1& a half hour of viewing. Islamic heritage from around the world displayed here. Good day. Restaurant, gift shop too.
One of the most refreshing places to satiate the culture vulture. It would be interesting to know how so very diverse musical instruments and artists are brought together to present the well arranged performances we have enjoyed so far. Its great to experience the artistic expression of different cultures, especially when there is such delicate fusion of more than one! Prices are reasonable, ushers friendly and the Park after the show never fails to astound us with its serenity. The auditorium was a little cold, though.
