  • We have seen a very nice show on the "adventurers of the seas" but the rest of the Museum is badly presented, sometimes almost unreadable! Whose idea this stupid text in yellow on a transparent background?

  • I had heard a lot and only for good, what a disappointment, I couldn't do that the permanent exhibition and I out disappointed to have lost 1.5 hours of my time. The exhibition is located on 3 floors, almost vacuum, a difficult to follow chronology. I went there in total novice on this culture and this Museum of my not allowed to learn just the basics of cultures... very disappointed!

  • A staple of any Paris visit, both for its temporary exhibitions, always very successful, its many conferences and workshops, its superb view from the terrace of the last floor - and finally, a visit to the store: great choice of books on Arabic, original gifts culture...

  • 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
