The museum collects Kunst of Islamic people from 8. to 19-th century from the area between Spain and India. The excavation activity in Ktesiphon, Samarra  and [[Tabgha] as well as the acquisition possibilities led to the fact that, above all, [[Egypt], Vordere East and Iran form important main focuses. Other regions are represented by important collection objects or collection groups, as for example calligraphy and miniature painting from Mogul empire or sizilianischen pieces of art from ivory.
Important collection objects Edit
Because of her size, the art-historical meaning or the popularity with museum visitors are to be called, above all:
- Mschatta facade
- Aleppo room
- Dome from Alhambra
- [[Mihrab] from Kaschan
- Mihrab from Konya
- Drache - Phönix carpet, Asia Minor, beginning 15-th century
- [[Koran] faltpult, Asia Minor (Konya), 13-th century

In addition to long-term exhibit the museum shows regularly exhibits of modern art from the Islamic world, in 2008, for example, " Turkish of Delight " (contemporary Turkish design) and "Naqsh" (Gender and role pictures in Iran).
In 2009 the museum as a long-term loan received a high-carat collection of Islamic art of the London collector Edmund de Unger, so-called "Keir Collection". The collection encloses about 1,500 pieces of art from 2000 years and counts to the biggest private collections of Islamic art. 
The museum was founded in 1904 by Wilhelm von Bode as an " Islamic department " in imperial Friedrich's museum (today's Bode's museum). Occasion was the donation of the facade of the [[Umayyaden|umayyadischen] of wild castle [[Mschatta-Fassade|Mschatta] by the osmanischen sultan Abdülhamid II to emperor Wilhelm II. Together with 21 carpets donated by Bode formed the facade the store of the collection. In the anew built Pergamonmuseum the museum covered the upper floor of the south wing and was opened there in 1932. Because of II. Weltkrieges was closed the exhibit in 1939.
In spite of the paging of pieces of art and the protection of objects remained in the Pergamonmuseum the collection suffered damages and losses. A bomb hit destroyed one of the gate towers of the Mschatta facade and by an incendiary accommodated valuable carpets burnt in a safe deposit of the coin all or part. In 1954 the collection was reopened as an " Islamic museum " in the Pergamonmuseum. The supplies evacuated in the western occupied zones were led back in the museum in Dahlem where they could be likewise issued in 1954 for the first time after the war again. From 1968 to 1970 there was an exhibit in castle Charlottenburg. In 1971 the constant exhibit of the " museum was opened for Islamic art " in a new building in the museum complex Dahlem.
The " Islamic museum " in the Pergamonmuseum on Museumsinsel in 1945 to 1946 received in 1958 the biggest part as Beutekunst in the [[Soviet Union] to spent pieces of art back. With the restoration of other important collection objects it became possible till 1967 to make all showrooms of the general public accessible. On the basis of the [[arrangement contract] it both museums were brought together in 1992 under the name " museum for Islamic art " organizationally. In the location of Dahlem the exhibit closed in 1998. An anew formed constant exhibit was opened in the upper floor of the south wing in the Pergamonmuseum in 2000.
