|The Exhibition "1001 Inventions" Opens at the Science Museum, London |
|The Exhibition "1001 Inventions: Muslim Heritage in Our World" opened at the Science Museum in London on 21 January 2010 and was greeted with great interest by the world's media, keen to cover the exhibition and comment on its various elements. The exhibition, which runs until 30 June 2010, looks at the social, scientific and technical achievements that are credited to the Muslim world, whilst celebrating the shared scientific heritage of other cultures. The exhibition is a British based project, produced in association with the Jameel Foundation.|
Initially the exhibition was expected to stay on display until 25 April 2010. But because of the great success it encountered and the rush of visitors, the duration of the 1001 Inventions Exhibition at the Science Museum was extended until the 30th of June 2010.
