About Hotels in Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo!

The Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo is one of the most prominent and important cultural institutions in the region. Located on Al-Moez Street, it houses a vast collection of artifacts from across the Islamic world, ranging from Egypt and its neighbors to Spain and Central Asia. The museum itself is a magnificent structure, with its distinctive domes, courtyards and columns, built in the traditional Islamic architectural style that dates back centuries. It was designed by French architect Michel Ecochard, who was commissioned by King Farouk to create an impressive building that would serve as an homage to Arabic culture and history.

The museum contains more than 100,000 objects spanning over 1,400 years of Islamic presence in Egypt. These include exquisite manuscripts, textiles, ceramics, glassware and metalwork from all periods of Islamic history. The collection also includes works from some of the greatest artists and artisans such as such as Ibn Tulun or Ibn al-Wardi. Visitors can admire artefacts from master craftsmen like Ali ibn Ridwan or even Isma'il Abu’l Hasan al-Hadidi . Other noteworthy items include wooden lancet windows from the 12th century which are unique examples of wood carving mastery within Islamic art; a 14th century Mamluk mihrab (prayer niche) depicting floral motifs; exquisite relief carvings showing exemplary workmanship; and a stunning prayer rug with velvet decorations made for Ottoman Sultan Murad III.

Finally, visitors can take advantage of the museum’s educational facilities including lectures on Islamic art topics as well as workshops on how to identify different types of objects found within the collection. Overall, this museum truly reflects the rich culture and heritage of Islam both past and present making it a must see cultural destination for those looking for an insight into this ancient religion's unique aesthetic legacy.
