  • Light not awful a lot of pottery and objects disappointed by the lack of info on the marine trades

  • A nice modern building with architectural choices that seek to conciliate modernity with tradition. and this seems like the intent of the place: do not crush the Arab culture on Islam. beautiful exhibition rooms, with not many exhibits, but well presented. nice view from the top floor of the roofs of Paris (we are in the Latin quarter near the Seine).

  • Exhibition "adventurers of the seas" interesting and informative. Entry price a little high! Don't forget to go to the terrace which offers a beautiful view of Paris.

  • 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
