What people are saying:

An amazing museum...both the building itself and what it holds. The walls are glass, with dynamic light sensors that open and close metal apertures in class Middle Eastern designs to control the natural light. The collections are amazing as well. Plus, the view from the cafe is one of the best in the city for taking in Notre Dame.

    A Disgrace.

    Having travelled extensively in Arab countries and being a fan of Arab art and architecture, I had high hope for this museum. Unfortunately, I found almost nothing of any interest. The most intereting...

    ALULA exhibition is very interesting

    We spent 2 hours in the AlUla exhibition and we learned a lot about Saudi Arabia and the AlUla region in particular. The region history is very rich, and the development potential for tourism, archit...

Additional Information

Introduction

Founded in 1980, the Institut du Monde Arabe, also known as The Arab World Institute, was built after an agreement was settled in which all parties agreed that an effort was required to create a bridge between the Arab world and the French. Because it is so important to relay accurate information to the general public, the goal of this museum is to debunk some of the assumptions of the Arab community by helping visitors to immerse themselves into Arab culture. The museum showcases a myriad of artifacts significant to the Arab world including manuscripts, pottery, utensils and other unique artifacts.
