Science and the Muslim World

1001 Inventions brings to the Science Museum in London an exhibition detailing 1,000 years of science from the Muslim world. The free exhibition runs from 21 January to 25 April with a break between 25 February and 12 March.

The exhibition will look at the social, scientific and technical achievements that are credited to the Muslim world, whilst celebrating the shared scientific heritage of other cultures.

Dates: 21 January till 25 April 2010 (temporary closure 25 Feb to 12 March 2010)
Times: 10am till 6pm every day. Entrance is free of charge.
Location: Science Museum, Exhibition Road, South Kensington, London

Jim Al-Khalili writes in the Guardian (1 February 2010) about the inventions at the exhibition he liked the most here.

The BBC also describes the exhibition here.

Jazakh'Allah-khairun to Sister Rainbow for pointing me towards this event.
