Collections move into the World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre
We are beginning to move the collection of the Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas (currently housed offsite) to the World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre at Bloomsbury.
Once we complete the project, you will have improved access to the collections. However, during the move, you will not be able to visit or request loans from the research collections. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The collections will be closed for the following dates:
Africa collection: October 2013 to March 2016
Oceania collection: October 2015 to May 2018
Americas collection: June 2017 to January 2020
Researchers can still access the textile collections (housed offsite) and the AOA departmental archives and pictorial collection.
