Unique in America, the IMMC is dedicated to educating the public about Islamic history and culture, the contribution of Muslims to the global community and the diversity of the Muslim community: past, present and future. IMMC contains two permanent exhibitions. The Legacy of Timbuktu features ancient Timbuktu manuscripts uncovering Africa’s literate culture and celebrating a glorious age of learning and empire building. Islamic Moorish Spain: Its Legacy to Europe and the West features artifacts and information on Muslim rule in Spain, its contributions to philosophy, science, medicine, mathematics, astronomy, agriculture, commerce, architecture and the arts.
While the original museum is currently closed, visit "Muslims with Christians and Jews: An Exhibition of Covenants and Coexistence," a special exhibition that explores the historical and current relationship between Islam and America, highlighting the positive views of our Founding Fathers and what they knew and said about Islam. This theme is further explored through the struggle for freedom in America, featuring the voices of African American Muslims, and connecting this struggle to today’s continuing struggle for civil and human rights in the United States of America.
The exhibition is at 101 E. Capitol Street at the corner of Capitol and Farish in downtown Jackson.
