Moustafa, who is of Lebanese descent, opened the museum as a non profit entity, and has received immense support from volunteers and financial backers.

He claims that almost a year since its opening more than 8,000 people have visited the museum with 50% of them Muslims while the rest were non-Muslims.

Australia Day is the official national day of Australia, which is celebrated annually on January 26 each year to mark the anniversary of the arrival of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales.
