Islamic Museum of Australia

The Islamic Museum of Australia showcases and preserves the arts, history and culture of Islam in Australia and abroad. It is a not-for-profit organisation that is located in the northern Melbourne suburb of Thornbury.

The Museum is a contemporary building, consisting of a sympathetically renovated warehouse building that now contains bright and interesting display Galleries. In between this Gallery building and the new entry and administration part of the Museum is a Courtyard, that not only acts a metaphorical link to the Australian bush but also provides natural ventilation through glass louvres.

There are 5 Permanent Galleries in the Museum, that display the following subjects:-

  • Islamic Faith
  • Islamic Contribution to Civilisation
  • Islamic Art
  • Islamic Architecture
  • Australian Muslim History

Other Facilities that the Musuem provides are:-

– Resource Centre
– Multifunction Centre
– Visiting Exhibition Centre
– Prayer Rooms
– Theatrette
– Gift Shop
– Group and School Tours
– Private Tours
