Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia reviews
Visited morning of Wednesday 9 September 2020 as a respite from lockdown restraints as this museum had been on our 'to visit' list for about 15 years. Greeted warmly at reception after checking in..... more »
Am a proud Malaysian but feel bad because I never knew about this museum - although it has been established for 22 years! - not until a friend from overseas highlighted it to me ^~^ This huge museum.... more »
Impressive museum collection with precise vision of the past and present curated beautifully. Even my two 9yrs and 7yrs daughter spend hours at the children area and surprisingly they love looking at some of the amazing and colourful artifacts. Very delicious middle eastern cuisine at the museum restaurant even though would be nicer if the museum can cater for middle to lower price of menu or restaurant for the locals. Stunning interiors and extremely friendly man greeting us at the counter, this museum definitely not to be missed.
The museum is strategically located. Truly inspiring exhibits! A must see. The models on display are meticulously prepared plus the comprehensive information - one of the best museums I have ever visited. Well done to the museum team❤️. Will definitely come again.
