House of Wisdom Exhibition

The House of Wisdom exhibition highlights and showcases some of the amazing contributions of Muslim civilization. Find out about some of the remarkable achievements made by Muslim scholars, inventors and scientists in areas such as astronomy, medicine, architecture, mathematics, engineering, science, technology and much more.

Over a thousand years ago in ancient desert cities, Muslim scientists discovered the principles of flight, defined the theory of vision, developed algebra, and pioneered techniques in medicine and chemistry that still benefit billions of people around the world till today in so many amazing ways.

The House of Wisdom exhibition is about bringing hidden knowledge and authentic history to the forefront of British and European society. Helping to develop a more understanding, caring, open and connected community, in the UK and indeed the world. Our aim is to also inspire the next generation of scientists and inventors, who have a dedication to serve their faith and their communities Insha’Allah.

Combining interactive displays, many rare artefacts and videos, the House of Wisdom exhibition is a great opportunity for children, adults, religious leaders, and teachers, to interact and discuss Islam’s contribution to civilisation.

The exhibition is open to the public 7 days a week.
