A sensory pathway through the Louvre's new Islamic Arts department (cont.)

The Islamic Arts Department was the biggest construction project undertaken by the museum since the completion of the Grand Louvre project.
The collection, which boasts 15,000 objects in addition to 3,500, loaned by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, illustrates the diversity of the arts over a 2,000 year period and spanning three continents. The new space highlights one of the world’s richest and most stunning collections of Islamic arts from the 7th through the 19th centuries.

 

 

Our previous post discussed the importance of the sensory pathway through the collection for people with visual impairments. Now that you’ve followed its creation, this video offers a look at the kiosks installed in the museum and ready for use.
