1001 Inventions – Discover The Muslim Heritage In Our World
For a thousand years, Muslim civilisation stretched from southern Spain as far as China. From the 7th century onwards, scholars of many faiths built on the ancient knowledge of the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, making breakthroughs that paved the way for the Renaissance.
The discoveries made by men and women in Muslim civilisation have left their mark on the way we live today. 1001 Inventions uncovers a thousand years of science and technology that had a huge but hidden impact on the modern world.
A ground breaking exhibition uncovering the hidden history of Muslim contributions to science and invention. This interactive exhibition brings to life an often overlooked golden age of discovery and innovation.
It uncovers one thousand years of scientific and technological innovation by Muslim scholars and inventors across the globe from southern Europe to Asia: the first flying machine, the first university, our numbers 1 – 9, astronomy, algebra, and day to day necessities like coffee, soap, clocks, surgical instruments and the camera.
The hands on exhibition is arranged in seven zones home, school, market, hospital, town, world and universe.
