The Aga Khan Museum presents and collects art from historically significant Muslim civilizations as well as contemporary Muslim communities and diasporas around the world. The core of its Permanent Collection — spanning a vast geographic area from Spain and North Africa in the west, across the Middle East, to South Asia and China in the east — was assembled by Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan (1933–2003), uncle of His Highness, Prince Karim Aga Khan IV. Prince Sadruddin began acquiring works of art in the 1950s while studying at Harvard University. Together with his wife, Princess Catherine Aga Khan, he continued to collect throughout his lifetime. His Highness the Aga Khan and his family have supported and expanded Prince Sadruddin’s collection since his death. Today, it represents the foundation of North America’s first museum dedicated exclusively to Islamic arts, where it is enhanced by superb objects from the private collections of Prince Amyn and His Highness the Aga Khan as well as new acquisitions, special exhibitions, and a rich roster of performances and public programs.

The Aga Khan Museum provides engaging opportunities for lifelong learning for people of diverse ages and interests. Our educational programs are based on the Museum’s Permanent Collection, temporary exhibitions, and performing arts programs, and focus on the promotion of pluralism, the history and diversity of Muslim civilizations, and their contributions to artistic, scientific, and intellectual development of our shared world heritage.

Renowned speakers, educators, and artists engage audiences in a variety of forums — from hands-on school programs to lectures, studio workshops, and tours. With a constantly changing roster of programs, events, and exhibitions, there’s always something to discover for curious people of all ages.
