Official opening of MACS MTO™ in September 2024

The Musée d’Art et de Culture Soufis MTO™ (MACS MTO™), the first museum dedicated to exploring the principles and artistic expressions of Sufism opens on 28 September 2024. The Museum is located on the banks of the Seine in the Parisian suburb of Chatou, facing the historic Île des Impressionnistes.

Housed in a newly-restored 19th-century mansion, the Museum features 600 square-meters of exhibition space across three stories, a Sufi garden, and an archival research library.

MACS MTO™ features Sufism’s core function—a path for self-discovery—as a framework for multidisciplinary exploration. The artistic program is built on a foundational platform of dialogue with the beliefs and questions of our time. Rather than explore the rich contributions of Sufism through a historical lens, MACS MTO™ positions the discipline within the ecosystem of contemporary art and culture.

A permanent collection of Sufi art and cultural objects, along with a programme of semi-annual contemporary exhibitions, talks, events, and workshops, will explore the rich contributions of Sufism to global art and culture throughout history.
