A truly unique experience. Ive been to the Aga Khan a couple of times before, but it never gets old. The new REMASTERED exhibit is particularly eye-opening, and the permanent collection is always worth re-examining and reflecting on.Means a lot to have a genuinely great museum that takes Islamic art and histoey seriously, but without being preachy.
Its great and right now Gautama by Faig Ahmed is on show and it's amazing. It's the first time I've got to see one of his pieces in real life. Also go to the cafe and get yourself a walnut baklava cause they're absolutely delicious.

An interesting museum with a beautiful building and park. The museum features various Muslim works that you won't find in the ROM or other museums. It's a bit accessible through transit, but with the building of the Crosstown access to the museum will get easier. It is also a small museum but I can't complain since it was free admission when I went.
I came here for Doors Open with some friends as none of us had ever been before. We had a nice lunch at Diwan (great place by the way!) by the entrance of the museum before walking around to explore the ground floor artifacts on display, courtyard, and beautiful surroundings outside. There was even a traditional performance in the courtyard at one point. We enjoyed our visit despite the fact that it was very busy and it seemed that professional photos were being taken everywhere that afternoon. We got some great photos of the beautiful exterior, surrounding fountains and gardens despite this. It was understandably a lot more serene outside in the gardens and by the fountains. I can imagine some having a nice peaceful lunch or reading a book when the weather is nice by those areas.I enjoyed my time here as part of a girls afternoon and really couldn't complain as it was free admission for the areas that we explored that day. Some of the other reviewers mentioned feeling like they paid a lot for what they saw and that this museum is smaller than others for similar pricing. The ground floor artifacts are nice but not plentiful so I can see people feeling a bit let down by that. I didn't see the paid exhibitions though so I can't comment on whether the pricing was worth it for that or parking as I was dropped off. I think it's fair to say that if you want to visit and get some nice pictures, wait for an opportunity to go for free admission during the week (Wednesday I think)
Museum is small and took us about an hour. Good exhibits. I wish they had audio guides - you would learn a lot more. There are physical tours but timing is a challenge. Its too bad they dont have more carpets and jewels or any paintings of sculptures. It was like visiting a small wing of a bigger museum. They need more big ticket permanent items to keep a draw of customers. Grounds are lovely. Restaurant is fabulous.
