So That You Might Know Each Other..

So That You Might Know Each Other..

Hi friends!

I love visiting museums. So That You Might Know Each Other is an exhibition happening at Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization. It started on March 19th and will go on until June 14th, 2014. I attended this exhibition in April 2014 but got around to doing a post about it only now!

This exhibition is about the World of Islam from North Africa to China and Beyond. All the displays were so beautiful and from a whole different era. Here are several pictures I have clicked:
