  • The Museum is located on the 7th floor, but before go you, take a ride on the terrace of the 9th. The view of Paris is stunning. The Museum is well designed. He alternates documents Visual, audio and exhibit d: objects. To open up to other cultures' in the history of islam and other religions.

  • Frankly I would have expected something more. The Museum is interesting but at the same time with a few items. I think Islamic ceramics, which are stunning, the Museum shows only a dozen. Beautiful exhibits, especially the one of the jewels of the Maghreb. The bookshop was closed for remodeling, shame because it is one of the libraries on the subject more provider

  • 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
