Museum of Islamic Art

The Museum of Islamic Art is home to the largest collection of Islamic Art in the world, which has long been collected from three continents, and the artifacts date from 1400 years ago to the present day. The importance of this cultural institution on the national identity of Qatar is evidenced primarily by the pride of all citizens in this museum, and the level of effort invested to make this a truly special place on the map of the Muslim world. The artificial island was made to house this museum, and the ninety-one-year-old I.M. Pei, author of the Pyramid of the Louvre, got out of retirement to make the design of the museum. The inspiration for the museum building was found in Cairo in a fountain located in Ibn Tulun Mosque. It is unnecessary to talk about the collection because wealth and beauty surpass words.
