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.

One of a kind museum in Toronto specializing in Middle East and Islamic art. It's just great. It gives a glimpse of art that we are not really familiar with. They also have amazing "traveling" exhibitions that come to this museum from time to time. These can be remarkable & very very unique. OK, so it's hard to get to by public transit & parking there can be pricey. It's a beautiful place & the gardens in summer are beautiful.
Phenomenal experience!! What an elegant building inspired with sophisticated thoughts and ideas for the modern world to live by today. Incredible learnings that arose from all the artifacts and exhibitions that were on display. Wishing the team the very best in fulfilling their global vision and mandate.
Best museum! You will always find some thing new and interesting here. Great events held as well. Very good vibe Try it
Finding a place that allows Muslims in North America to reconnect to the past and rich heritage of Islam is almost non-existent, except in Toronto, Ontario. I have visited the AK Museum three times and each time I am left with a greater sense of Islam's past through new exhibits. The grounds are breath taking and it is always a fun afternoon with my family. If you want to see Islam through the past I urge you to visit the AK Museum.
Beautiful architecture. Excellent exhibit, both permanent and temporary. Excellwnt tour guides. Snack bar and you can bring your own. Lovely grounds. Excellent restaurant. I love how the Muslim/Islamic culture is respectfully on display.
