“Great historical place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

The musuem offers a great selection of historical islamic crafts and ornaments. It also contains well explained charts of the historical islamic states. However it is not very well organised so you may get lost and miss a part. Finally you can buy some souvenirs from the gift shop.

“Kuala Lampur trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

the Islamic Art Museum is an excellent place to visit. The authentic 9th and 10th century Quran manuscripts brought tears to my eyes. Every thing was laid out professionally, with too much history in there. Certinly worth while, but best of all was the restaurant down stairs. Make sure you eat there. The food was VERY TASTY. Presentation is good, very clean, but the taste is extra ordinary...

We stopped at the islamic museum by the kl hop on bus. It has models of major mosques all over the world. It has old quran books and samples of coins, clothes and tools of different islamic ages.
