Museum of Islamic Art

Local nameמוזיאון לאומנות האיסלם
LocationOld City, Jerusalem, Israel

The Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem provides visitors with a glimpse of one of the rarest and unique collections worldwide that relate the story of Islam from its beginnings in the 7th century to the 19th century.

Alongside the Islamic display is the famous Sir David Salamons Collection of antique European watches and clocks, one of the world's most important. The highlight of the display are the revolutionary watches and clocks made by the horological genius, Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823). Breguet's technological innovations can be seen in the masterpiece, watch no. 160, the famous "Marie Antoinette", commonly referred to as the "smartphone" of watches, and possibly the most valuable in the world.

In addition to the permanent display, the Museum annually holds two temporary exhibitions of contemporary art on various subjects.
