The Aga Khan Museum is part of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN). Founded and chaired by His Highness the Aga Khan, AKDN is a private, international, non-denominational development organization that works to improve living conditions and opportunities for people in the developing world.
The Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) – the cultural arm of AKDN – has overseen the Museum’s evolution from concept to reality. The construction of the Aga Khan Museum is the most recent addition to AKTC’s initiatives, which include the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, the Aga Khan Music Initiative, and the Aga Khan Historic Cities Program. AKTC’s aim is the physical, social, cultural, and economic revitalization of Muslim communities. For more information, please visit www.akdn.org.
