Aga Khan Museum - Review
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
My family and I have been to a ton of museums in our lives and this one stood out well above the rest. We went on a Saturday afternoon and to my surprise the museum was not overcrowded. There were so many amazing exhibits- all relating to middle eastern art from thousands of years ago through today. I enjoyed a complimentary coffee and baklava while watching a pop up performance after taking a guided tour which made me feel like I was at a cafe somewhere in Northern Africa. Thank you Aga Khan Museum for providing us with great pieces of your culture!
Great museum and one of the city's hidden treasures. Not usually crowded and the entry fee is nominal. A must visit place if you want to learn about middle eastern history and culture especially in current times when cross cultural understanding is the need of the hour. I went in here for the Syria exhibit and my visit ranks among the most enriching hours of my life.
Neat and well maintained museum. The architecture is astonishing as well as the surrounding pool and park. Definitely a must visit venue for an art enthusiast. Wednesday's evenings are free entry. Underground parking is available. Permanent collection on the first floor is good and can take around an hour to complete. They would have some temporary collections on the second floor or some events going on. This would mean you can go back multiple times. The staff are friendly and helpful.
It is a very nice place to spend an afternoon with friends. There is no entrance fee on Wednesday afternoon, from 5 pm to 8 pm. The restaurant there will close at 5 pm and unfortunately we couldn't get a chance to try it. Parking fee is 10$ and it's a flat rate and it's a little bit too much as I believe you don't spend more than 2 or 3 hours there. They have a shop there too, and pricing is crazy high. I know everything in the store is gorgeous but it's very expensive. Overall I like the place.
It's a great museum to see. They have a lot of parking lots underground too which cost you $10 flat. I found the first floor really nice with ton of interesting items to see and study about. If you're looking for a super fancy food, try their restaurant. The architecture and outdoor is really nice and they usually have different programs and tours. Enjoy!
