  • After the Orient Express train, a dhow from Oman docked at the foot of the Institute of the Arab world. To see.

  • Admire the building whose components vary depending on the amount of sunshine, get free views of Paris in a magnificent panoramic lift, go to the delicious restaurant and do a show, or if you are with children, prefer coffee (ice to rose, drink on the dates) and take a tour of the magnificent library.

  • I recommend this exhibition that explains the development of maritime trade routes. It's very interesting, and maps that are exposed show the incredible knowledge of the sailors in these distant times. Courage it took these men to go to sea with also information gaps; It was really daring. The dhow exposed outside the building is superb. Practically: the audioguide is not essential, but gives some information in addition to those displayed throughout the exhibition. the price however is a bit excessive: €5. On the building of the Institute of the Arab world: I found that it was not very clean. the windows need to be cleaned up as the sun goes through difficult. Run the toilets of the sub floor (-2) frankly creepy.

  • Very interesting building inside and out. Architecturally arresting. Good view from the terrace and no ticket is needed to access it.
  • skewed towards the gulf states, who provided the museum's funding. would have liked to see a more balanced-museum that highlighted more Lebanese and Syrian cultural contributions. at least I enjoyed the bookstore!
  • Very interesting place to know more about Muslim culture and heritage. The rooftop view gives a very nice spot to chill on summer afternoons ☪
  • Famous building from Jean Nouvel . Start to age a bit but still very interesting to visit. Be sure to checkout the unique camera-like iris diaphragm windows panels that imitate oriental pattern and adjust the ambient light inside the building. Good bookstore specialized in Middle East culture.
  • By far, I think IMA one of the best Islamic /Arab Museums. Not only with its permanent collection , but also the temporary exhibitions. Don't miss the library and Orient gardens
