What to Expect?

The Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia (IAMM) is one of Kuala Lumpur’s most popular attractions. An impressive architectural feat, Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia features a huge blue turquoise dome on top of the building, glass walls that allow natural light to flow in, domed ceilings adorned with intricate Islamic patterns, and a vast exhibition space which spans 30,000 square metres.

The Islamic Arts Museum exhibits its wide-ranging collection of Islamic art in open gallery floors. The elimination of spatial division permits uninterrupted movement from one exhibition space to the next, which intends to inspire a sense of continuity. The collection is made up of galleries for Chinese, Indian, and Malay art while also including themed sections for the Quran, manuscripts, textiles, jewellery, coins, metal, wood and ceramics. The IAMM has two floors of permanent galleries, and two special galleries for temporary exhibitions.

Housing extensive collections of Islamic decorative arts from all over the world, this stunning building is located at the fringe of the 227-acre Lake Gardens and is accessible within a five-minute walk from the National Planetarium and National Mosque.

    Amazing place to learn more about Islam's values, buildings & culture. Nicely curated muzium. Ongoing art exhibition on Orietalist paintings from June to October 2023.

    The art was exquisite! A lot of representation of the Arab world painted by travellers from the west who went to visit North Africa and the gulf for artistic inspiration. It was also beautiful to see ancient Malay embroidery and an art piece where the entire Quran was written onto a fabric. Some parts of the museum were still under development such as the outdoor dome area as well as the courtyard garden which was unfortunate because it looked really pretty from outside. I also recommend getting some souvenirs from the gift shop because surprisingly they were quite cheap, cheaper than some stalls at petaling street!

    Incredible museum. If you have to pick one to visit in KL, this is probably it. There's an Orientalist exhibit now. The paintings are great, looks great even when photographed. Lighting is good and it's the kind of place you can stare at paintings for hours and be immersed in them.

    If you like art, I highly recommend visiting the store. They have replicas sold. Quite pricey, but many are worth it. Even the fridge magnets and coasters are well done.

    The children's library is also a nice place to bring your kids while your spouse explores the museum. It's about RM20 per person now but well worth it.

    The museum is so amazing. It's the best museum I've ever been to, and I've been to plenty! It shows the rich history of Islamic arts and is absolutely wonderful.

    It's informative and full of information for you to learn more about islam history. The museum is so clean and has a vast collection of items, It has many sign posts and plaques sharing the stories of iconic people and items in English and Arabic, so you wouldn't need a guide.

    I love the architecture of this islamic museum. Stunning building from all angles. Every corner of the room decorated so perfect. Very impressive, look expensive, and immaculate, detailed marble and sweeping staircase and architectural ceiling. The washroom is so clean. They have a praying room, too. So it's easy for you to pray.

    It's easy to come here. You can come with public transport or Uber.

    Such a lovely place! Some truly amazing artifacts and works of art. You can learn so much about Islamic history throughout Asia and see such cool stuff. I’d highly recommend checking it out!
    There were only about three other people when I went, but it was a weekday. It’s very close to the national mosque, like a 5 minute walk if even. If you ask me it’s much more beautiful and interesting than the mosque which gets a lot more visitors. You should check out both for sure.
