The Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia (IAMM) in Kuala Lumpur is welcoming visitors with a free admission open day on June 25, with a fun-filled arts and culture programme for the whole family to enjoy.
The walk-in event – a belated International Museum Day celebration – runs from 9.30am to 5.30pm.
Visitors can explore IAMM’s permanent galleries through interactive gallery trails, and take part in guided tours from curators on the latest special exhibition, 14 Dynasties And A Region, which focuses on various Islamic dynasties.
If you're into art, a mini exhibition, Calligraphy At IAMM: Celebrating 20 Years With PSKK is also on display. The open day event will also be presenting live demonstrations on calligraphy by representatives from the Persatuan Seni Khat Kebangsaan (National Islamic Calligraphers Association of Malaysia).
In addition, here is a chance to also observe demonstrations from IAMM’s conservation department and interact with IAMM’s librarians at a special book display from its scholar’s library.
For young visitors – between four and 12 – don't miss out on participating in the "Lost Artefacts Quest", an interactive treasure hunt taking place in the morning and afternoon that covers the permanent galleries where there will be interaction with unique characters.
The IAMM, which opened in 1998, is the largest museum of Islamic arts in South-East Asia with more than seven thousand artefacts from the Islamic world.
IAMM is located at Jalan Lembah, Tasik Perdana in Kuala Lumpur.
