International Museum of Muslim Cultures
With the goal of highlighting the contributions of Muslims to world civilization, the founders began working to create the museum. They also sought to increase citizens’ understanding and appreciation of the richness of Mississippi’s diverse cultural and religious heritage and the role that Muslims have played in the state’s history and development.
The Museum opened in April 2001 with a major exhibition, Islamic Moorish Spain: Its Legacy to Europe and the West, that was featured concurrently with The Majesty of Spain, an international exhibition that ran for six months in Jackson at the Mississippi Arts Pavilion, less than a block away.
