MOSTI ~ KAUST's Islamic Golden Age Museum

Very interesting to discover the KAUST Museum of Science and Technology In Islam (MOSTI), a museum celebrating Muslim scholarship in science and technology during the first Islamic Golden Age. Located at the new King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia's modern new "House of Wisdom", MOSTI spotlights historical feats of Islamic discovery and engineering in realms including astronomy, mathematics (think "algebra" and "algorithms"), architecture, mechanization, medicine, and more!
