A veritable treasure trove of Islamic decorative art, Islamic Arts Museum is where you will find on display beautiful and stunning carpets, jewellery, pottery etched with calligraphy and other works of art that in addition to showcasing the nation's artwork are also a narrative on its historical and cultural heritage. Nestled in the dense surroundings of the Lake Gardens, Islamic Arts Museum houses over 7,000 artefacts as well as books on Islamic art.

Out here there is a large model, built to scale, of the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca. The museum has 12 galleries that houses its permanent as well as temporary collections. The emphasis out here is on works from Persia, Asia, China and Southeast Asia. The permanent galleries are located on level 3 and level 4. Level 3 has India, China and Malay gallery in addition to the Architecture gallery, Manuscripts gallery and the Ottoman Gallery where an ornately embellished Ottoman room has been reconstructed. Level 4 is where you will come across the Ceramics & Glass Gallery, Metalwork Gallery, Woodwork Gallery, Arms & Armour Gallery, Jewellery Gallery and Textiles Gallery.
Be sure to stopover at the museum's in-house restaurant where you can indulge in authentic Lebanese food and the quaint souvenir shop that sells handicrafts and books on art.
