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: April 2015 to September 2017
Americas collection: October 2016 to March 2019
Researchers can still access the textile collections (housed offsite) and the AOA departmental archives and pictorial collection.
