(MENAFN Editorial) Australia's very first Islamic art museum, the Islamic Museum of Australia, has been officially opened in Melbourne, the capital of the State of Victoria







Louise Asher, Minister for Innovation, Minister for Tourism and Major Events, and Minister for Employment and Trade from the State Government of Victoria, who recently led a Super Trade Mission to the Middle East, described the museum as an outstanding project which reinforces Melbourne's role as a cultural capital







"We deeply value the Islamic community's contribution to our State's cultural scene and we have been very proud to support this project which showcases the contemporary and historical heritage of the Islamic faith.







"This museum will give the Victorian community an opportunity to discover and build a better understanding of Islamic arts culture and heritage."








The Islamic Museum of Australia, which is located in the Melbourne suburb of Thornbury, encompasses five permanent gallery spaces: Islamic Faith, Islamic Art, Islamic Contribution to Civilisation, Islamic Architecture, and Australian Muslim History. In addition to these galleries, there is an exhibition centre hosting national and international exhibitions, educational resources and a caf.







The State Government of Victoria has supported the project through the provision of a A500,000 grant through the Cultural Precincts and Community Infrastructure Fund







The museum is a not-for-profit organisation with an objective to share the rich artistic heritage of Muslims in Australia, by shining a light on the many contributions Muslims have made to culture and civilization throughout time
