The Islamic Museum of Australia is a community/not-for-profit foundation with the vision of establishing a leading cultural institution to showcase and preserve the arts, history, culture and rich heritage that Islam and Muslim societies have brought to the world and more importantly Australia.

It will also provide unique cross-cultural and educational services offering fascinating insights into the Muslim Australian experience for visitors and school groups.

The IMA will look to continue the proud tradition that Australia, and namely the State of Victoria, have lead in becoming the Multicultural Hub of the world. This is through working with communities, cultures, faiths and developing centres to educate.

  • I spent a little over an hour here and I read almost everything. Was warmly welcomed by the lady who sold me my ticket. Being from SA, I appreciated that the museum recognised the Afghan cameleers. And I enjoyed the section of well known Australian Muslim's and some of their item's on display. I liked that sections of the Quran were written down and part of the exhibitions. And now I know the real and true meaning of "jihad". Worth a visit. 6 min walk away from tram stop.
  • Never had a chance to visit during my stay, but it easy to locate the museum !
