  • Visited the Moon Exhibit at the Aga Khan museum with extended family members. Excellent place with a decent Islamic collection. Staff are extremely helpful and I must say the Cafe was really affordable for getting a few sandwiches that were fresh and tasty. It's carefully manicured lawns we're really nice for the kids to roam and the landscape is just beautiful. The inside architecture of the buildings are also breathtaking. A must see I say especially as a place for families to go in summer time when you have the luxury to roam outside too. A band was playing when we were there and that was enjoyable too.
  • This was our second visit to the Aga Khan Museum and we once again enjoyed our time there. We did not book the tour this time but if it is your first visit, I recommend the tour. The staff are welcoming, friendly and more then willing to answer your questions. The Diwan Restaurant at the museum offers excellent food in a nice atmosphere. I will watch now for special events and I will definitely return.
