Interactive guide to the Met’s new Islamic Galleries

by

After 8 years of renovation, the Metropolitan Museum of Art opened its New Galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, and Later South Asia on on November 1. The remodeled and enlarged space includes 15 new galleries.   Thanks to the New York Times, you can explore the Moroccan Court, the Emperor’s Carpet, a mihrab and more of the amazing collection through an interactive guide to the new wing. The Metropolitan’s own website has several videos documenting the construction of the galleries and the installation and conservation of the wings objects and reconstructed rooms.
