Islamic Art Museum, Cairo
Too often overlooked by visitors to Cairo, the Museum of Islamic Arts is one of the finest museums in the city.
The museum's extensive collection of over 10,000 pieces includes mainly Egyptian art, but there are pieces from elsewhere in the Islamic world as well.
Arranged according to medium, the exhibits illustrate every era of development, from Ummayad to Abbasid, Fatimid, Ayyubid, and Mamluk works.
The artworks include woodwork, stucco, intarsia, ceramics, glass, metalwork, textiles, and carpets.
