Editor’s Note: The Following is an abridged version of a story written as part of a collaboration with The Globe and Mail. The story originally appeared on January 29, 2016.
The Ismaili community has been anticipating the Aga Khan Museum for a long time. It was so exciting to have a space that embodies religious and secular values.
A lot of the artifacts at the museum are directly tied to Ismaili and Islamic history. But there are also elements that can’t really be defined. Some artifacts belong to many cultures.
And that’s like history itself. So many cultures intersecting. That’s one thing I love about the museum.
Thanks to Sheniz for sharing her story. Check out the Aga Khan Museum!
