Can only compare to the displays that wowed me in NYC at the American Museum of Natural History, which had me intrigued to visit this establishment thinking the wow factor for the intricate art and design I had encountered prior, would be greater... alas no. 15 myr entrance for which I dont feel, I gained as much as at AMNH...

Im so glad i found time to visit this museum. Even if im not Muslim, it's enriching to know historical facts about their religion, the Q'ran, mosques and relics and artifacts of the Old Age. It was a hot afternoon when we visited and the cool airconditioned museum was quite a relief from walking around. This place, I can say... More

I'm not too much of a history buff but I liked the way the museum was organised. The restaurant was great too. The price was good and the artifacts were interesting. If you have a few hours to kill before you hit for lunch then this is a good place to spend the afternoon.

There are several galleries which are Malay, Chinese, Indian, Architectural and Manuscript. The artifacts and exhibited items are quite extensive from all over the Islamic world. There are also a big souvenir shop and... More

Clothing, jewelry, furniture, weapons, dishes, mosque models, Qur'ans...it was a lot. I recommend going earlier in the day as there is so much to look at you can get burnt out halfway. I especially enjoyed the book section, as there were so many beautifully done books by skilled calligraphers. I also enjoyed the clothing and weapons sections. What I like... More

Went there during opening at 10am and were the only people there. The artefacts were very interesting, with the collection of Koran artwork particularly of note. The museum was well laid out and we spent about 2 hours inside.

The building is well worth seeing in itself. The art is varied and covers many regions of the world. All well laid out and very interesting. The exhibition of photographs for Ramadan was excellent. Make sure to visit the Natrional Mosque across the road.
