It’s a first in North America.

A museum featuring only Islamic art, is opening in Toronto next month – displaying rare works from the personal collection of one of the world’s wealthiest  men.

The Aga Khan Museum’s collection consists of some 1,000 pieces – some of which are considered to be the most significant in Islamic art history.

Museum director Henry Kim says there’s a special reason the museum was built here in Canada.

He says Canada supports the principles the museum stands for – and our country represents “the best of the best,” when it comes to multiculturalism, diversity and pluralism.

The Aga Khan Museum opens to the public on Thursday, September 18th – at 77 Wynford Drive, in the Eglinton and Don Mills Road area.
