The arts play a vital role in society — helping us express ourselves, communicate with each other, think critically, and preserve history. At its core, this is what the Aga Khan Museum is all about.
Our mission is to spark wonder, curiosity, and understanding of Muslim cultures and their connection with other cultures through the arts — with a vision toward impacting lives and contributing to more inclusive and peaceful societies.
Through our world-renowned Islamic art collection, exhibitions, public programs, and performances, our Museum reveals compelling stories that combat society’s misperceptions, opens minds, and creates spaces for dialogue where everyone is welcome.
The Aga Khan Museum is redefining perceptions about what a museum can be and do. By supporting arts and culture that reflect many voices, and creating experiences that encourage mutual understanding, friendship, and a sense of belonging, the Museum is building an inclusive world that celebrates, encourages, and fosters diversity, inclusion, and cross-cultural dialogue.
Now, more than ever, the mandate of the Aga Khan Museum matters to the hearts and minds of our communities.
