Museum of the Arab World Institute
The Arab World Institute is a cultural, Parisian institute dedicated to the Arab world. Here you will find items that have never been seen from the dawn of Islam to today, from Andalusia to the edges of Asia.
Its construction is the result of a partnership between France and 22 Arab countries.
The building’s architecture is a mixture of the Arab and Western worlds.
The library is open from Tuesday to Saturday (except holidays) from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in July and August.
A variety of concerts and shows are held every month.
