The Islamic Museum of Australia is a community/not-for-profit foundation with the vision of establishing a leading cultural institution to showcase and preserve the arts, history, culture and rich heritage that Islam and Muslim societies have brought to the world and more importantly Australia.

It will also provide unique cross-cultural and educational services offering fascinating insights into the Muslim Australian experience for visitors and school groups.

  • This well presented museum has plenty of information in a modern setting. For those of us who are not of the Muslim faith there is plenty to learn. Well worth the visit. There is also a cafe on site.  more »

  • 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
  • Great place to take school groups. Beautiful building and comprehensive museum.
  • Very nice; not very accurate information though.
