Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia

The Islamic decorative arts housed in this striking museum are unparalleled. The galleries are organized by media (ceramics, textiles, metal pieces) or by geographic region (China, India and Malay, which extends from Thailand to parts of Indonesia as well as the Malaysian peninsula). From glittering jewelry to antique armor, it is an engagingly comprehensive collection—and the tile work in the museum is as impressive as that found in any mosque. The gift shop sells a wide range of handicrafts made by artisans across the Islamic world.
