Join us for a special Friday late at the Museum that celebrates the cultural diversity of the Islamic world to mark the opening of the Museum’s newest gallery – the Albukhary Foundation Gallery of the Islamic world (Room 42-43).

Enjoy free performances, talks, storytelling and craft activities across the Museum, as well as curator introductions and object handling in the gallery. Look out for Asma Elbadawi, winner of BBC Extra’s Last Word competition, who will be chronicling the event and don’t miss a special performance by the London Syrian Ensemble at the Great Court at 20.30.

Please note a designated contemplation and prayer space will be available in the Clore Education Centre, beneath the Great Court.
