  • Impressive. Quite engaging ... we attended the exhibition on Islamic coins which was very interesting. A strong emphasis on the history of Muslims in australia (up till today). A progressive take... it presents a very positive message about Muslims in Australia. Would be perfect for school groups. Our kids did a couple of science workshops ... the museum has a strong emphasis on the scientific highlights of Islam's past. There's a good cafe (Salt and Pepper) with a very pleasant coutyard which connects to the wooded Merri Creek trail.
  • Keep it up IMA team! Great place to visit
