{kuala lumpur} all islamic art

October 17, 2016

Across the street from Masjid Negara (the National Mosque of Malaysia) is the Islamic Art Museum Malaysia. With all that this giant museum has to offer, I didn’t question paying the admission fee (RM14 adults, RM7 students), especially with my grad school ID still handy.

Seriously I could have walked around this place for an entire day and still not have seen all that it has to offer in great detail. I didn’t want to spend the entire day here though (even though I’ll be honest it was all amazingly interesting stuff) so I made strategic decisions about which exhibits I was going to browse longer. I think my favorite parts were the domes that were so intricately decorated above my head in so many parts of the museum. In fact, really when I think, Islamic art in general is incredibly intricately decorated. It’s truly a labor of love for these artists.
