Worldwide Directory of Museums with Near Eastern Collections

Worldwide Directory of Museums with Near Eastern Collections
D. Homès-Fredericq with the collaboration of A. DeGraeve, Eric Gubel and I. Swinnen 

The World-Wide Directory of Museums lists museums with Ancient Near Eastern collections: national, regional, university museums and accessible private collections of Mesopotamia, the Levant, Iran, Anatolia, the Persian Gulf area and pre-islamic Arabia in general.

The Directory is intended for professionals, museum curators, archaeologists, philologists and students involved in Near Eastern studies, as well as tourists interested in visiting museums with Near Eastern collections. They will find the following information (wherever available): practical information about the museum: address (with telephone, fax, email), name of curator and/or director, opening day(s) and hours; description of the collection (importance and more detailed geographical, chronological information, origin of the objects, …), bibliography about the collection: including exhibition catalogues, journals, books, articles about the Near Eastern collections, slide collections if mentioned, as well as current and new projects, besides other relevant facts. The bulk of this information was collected on the Internet.
