Islamic Art Museum


The mission of the museum at KFCRIS is to increase our public's awareness of the inspirational aspects of Islamic Civilization and Art which are characterized by the geographic, material and historical breadth they represent.
The museum also aims to encourage Muslim youths' engagement with their history in order to connect their past to their future.
The collection contains over 200 objects representing various Muslim communities over the previous centuries. Chronologically, the collection begins from the 2nd century AH and extends until the 14th century AH. The types of objects included are decorative arts, weaponry, manuscripts, scientific equipment and coinage. In terms of material, the collection is predominantly made up of metalwork and ceramics, but also includes several examples of woodwork and textile.
