Jameel Centre for the Study of Eastern Art - new facility open to all

3 February 2011

The Jameel Centre for the Study of Eastern Art is a new facility open to members of the public, students and scholars alike for the study and enjoyment of the Eastern Art reserve collections.

Visitors are invited to come directly to the main study room of the Jameel Centre, located on the first floor of the Museum, off the Eastern Art Paintings gallery (gallery 29).

Although it is advisable, it is not necessary to make an appointment to see mounted drawings, paintings, and prints. Appointments by phone, in writing, or by email are required to view all the other items in the Eastern Art collection (ceramics, metalwork, stone, textiles, unmounted or framed paintings, scrolls, etc.). A week’s notice is recommended as some areas of the collection are stored offsite.
