Toronto’s spectacular new Aga Khan Museum has made two top travel destination lists:
- Fast Company Design’s Top 12 Destinations for Globetrotting Design Lovers, and
- Azure Magazine’s Top 10 Architecture Projects 2014
Opened in September 2014, the Aga Khan Museum is the first museum in North America dedicated to the arts of Muslim civilizations.
Cross-cultural exchange is central to the museum’s mission. Speaking recently of The Lost Dhow: A Discovery from the Maritime Silk Route, an exhibition about the shipwreck and cargo of a 9th-century Arab sailing vessel, Museum Director and CEO Henry Kim said, “The Lost Dhow exhibition is a natural fit with the Aga Khan Museum.
The cross-cultural exchange exemplified by the dhow’s cargo is exactly what our collection and programming both celebrate and explore.”
