Tickets for the Museum of Islamic Art
Visitors to Jerusalem have a unique opportunity in the L.A. Mayer Museum for Islamic Art. Few museums in Western countries boast such a deep collection of Islamic art, offering both art aficionados and history buffs an unprecedented look into the soul of Islamic cultures from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean and everywhere in between.
Arranged in chronological and geographical order, the Museum's exhibits foster an intimate understanding of the development of visual arts in the Muslim world from the dawn of the Umayyad caliphate all the down to the waning days of the Ottoman Empire. Pieces on display include sterling examples of the intricate geometric tilework that characterizes Islamic architecture, Arabic calligraphy, elaborate hand-embroidered rugs, hand-carved chess, backgammon and domino sets, gold and silver vessels, a in-depth exploration of the art of Islamic jewelry, weapons that double as objets d'art, and much, much more.
Another of the Museum's treats is an astounding collection of historic timepieces crafted by some of Europe's most renowned artisans. Visitors will be amazed by the almost inconceivable level of craft, detail and imagination worked into these tiny clocks.
