Islamic Arts Museum to Open in Toronto Today

The first museum in North America that will display only Islamic art is set to open in Toronto today. The museum's permanent collection will be the Aga Khan's personal family collection, which consists of about 1,000 pieces. That may sound small, but some of those artifacts are considered to be among the most significant in Islamic art history.

"I worked with three professional scholars in the field and they told me that, in their opinion, this was one of the most important pieces of Islamic art that I would ever see in my life," Stephanie Allen, the museum's chief registrar, told Canadian media group CBC News during a tour of the facility.

The museum was built in Canada because the country supports the principles that the museum stands for, said Henry Kim, the museum's director. "Canada actually represented the best of the best when it comes to multiculturalism, diversity and even pluralism," said Kim. The museum has been privately funded by the Aga Khan through his worldwide non-profit development agency. It opens today on Sept. 18 at 77 Wynford Dr., in the Don Mills Rd-Eglinton Ave. East. area.
