The Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, which is not housed in a historical building, is instead a modern facility that showcases some magnificent works of Islamic art.

Among the many galleries (which are set up in an open space rather than being sectioned off like most museums), are items from the Indian Mughal empire, Chinese Islamic ceramics and other pieces of Chinese artwork, and a wealth of Islamic art from the Malay peninsula and across the islands of Southeast Asia.
