Islamic Arts Museum

Some of the best examples of Islamic art are found at the Islamic Arts Museum in Kuala Lumpur. Amazing textiles, jewellery, and pottery are displayed beside an ornately detailed reproduction of an authentic, historic Ottoman room. The building rivals its contents, with decorated domes and extensive tiles, it is a work of art itself. Travellers to Kuala Lumpur should plan to examine the unique beauty of Islamic art whilst exploring the museum's twelve main galleries. After visiting, guests are invited to stop by the museum's gift shop that offers high-quality local crafts, education books, and souvenirs.

  • Explore the Syrian Ottoman room at the museum, which epitomizes Islamic artistic style with its detailed reproduction of the 19th century architecture and furnishings.
  • Stop for lunch at the Islamic Arts Museum restaurant to enjoy some of the best Lebanese food in Kuala Lumpur whilst appreciating local art and culture.
  • Take home a souvenir of your holiday; the museum gift shop is stocked with art books and well-made crafts to remind you of your visit to Kuala Lumpur.

The Islamic Arts Museum can be found just up the hill from Kuala Lumpur's National Mosque, and just down the block from the National Police Museum. The mosque has a nearby car park, but visitors may find it easier to arrive via taxi or public transportation. Trains are convenient option to this central area, and the stations serving this region are Bank Negara station and the old Kuala Lumpur station. From the train stations, guests will have a bit of a walk. The closest bus station is located at the bottom of the hill near the mosque.
