Virtual museum at SMD

The Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation has been chosen by Sharjah Museums Department (SMD) to display its artifacts on the website of Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF). 

This is an international online museum project which uses cultural heritage to foster intercultural understanding and create opportunities for local economic and cultural tourism development.

Museum with no Frontiers is also the largest online storehouse of Islamic art and platform to include all major Islamic art collections of the Arab world.

Sharjah’s contribution is part of MWNF’s initiative ‘Discover Islamic Arts Collections’ designed to expand on its online exhibitions devoted to ‘Islamic Art in the Mediterranean’. These were chosen by 14 countries to raise awareness about contribution of Islamic societies to the cultural identity of both Europe and the Arab world, and create opportunities of multilateral cooperation between cultural heritage experts from both regions.
