New Galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, and Later South Asia


More than one thousand works from the preeminent collection of the Museum's Department of Islamic Art—one of the most comprehensive gatherings of this material in the world—have returned to view in a completely renovated, expanded, and reinstalled suite of fifteen galleries. The organization of the galleries by geographical area emphasizes the rich diversity of the Islamic world, over a span of thirteen hundred years, by underscoring the many distinct cultures within its fold.

  1. People simply MUST stop by the MET to view the Art of the Arab Lands exhibit. I could not believe how amazing it was! The rooms were so beautiful and rich with culture. I loved it and know that others will love it too!
