Islamic Art Museum in Cairo

Islamic Art Museum in CairoWhether you are a fan of Islamic heritage or not, it takes one visit to the Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo to become one.

Relocated here in 1903 from its original home at the Fatimid Mosque of al-Hakim, this building is of tremendous importance, as it is the oldest building purposefully built to display Islamic art.

One thought

  1. It is interesting to see and accept the museum since 1903. I visited Cairo not so long ago and had difficulty in finding Fatimid museum. Being now a Sunni country the real Fatimid museum was left in a derelict situation. I hope now they have dealt with the contents with respect and dignity.
