Visiting the British Museum
Oceania is the vast region of the world that includes Australia, New Guinea and the many islands spread across the vast South Pacific Ocean.
The British Museum has some of the world's most important collections of art and artefacts from Oceania. Although the Museum doesn't at present have a dedicated Oceania Gallery, selections can be seen in the Living and Dying (Room 24), the Enlightenment gallery (Room 1) and Collecting the world (Room 2).
The Oceania section of the Department of Africa, Oceania and Americas has active research programs in collaboration with Oceanic peoples, contributing to publications and exhibitions.
