The Aga Khan Museum in Toronto, Canada offers visitors a window into worlds unknown or unfamiliar: the artistic, intellectual, and scientific heritage of Muslim civilizations across the centuries from the Iberian Peninsula to China.
Millennia before iPhones captured history’s significant moments, artists across cultures were depicting occasions in tapestries, paintings, and sculpture. Today the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto, ON, whose mandate is connecting cultures through the arts, houses more than 1,000 years of artistic accomplishments in its Permanent Collection. Visitors explore painted manuscripts, metalwork as well as scientific instruments, which showcase the breadth of Muslim civilizations from the Iberian Peninsula to China. The Museum also boasts an ever-changing roster of exhibitions and innovative programs – including music and dance performances, theatre, lectures, workshops, and film screenings. The Lonely Planet travel guide describes the Aga Khan Museum as the “#1 reason to visit Toronto now.”
