About the Projects

Musee Sans Frontieres - Museum with No Frontiers

The Museum with No Frontiers (MWNF) covers the various Islamic dynasties and cultures of the Mediterranean.

It spans around 1,280 years. It covers from the year 634 when the Muslim Arab armies entered Syria, to the fall of the Ottoman Empire at the beginning of the 20th century.

MWNF is a non-governmental organisation based in Brussels. It brings together and shares these inter-relating collections, monuments and sites and it makes links that have never been made before.

All the partner museums are aware of the importance of using culture to promote political co-operation, and using this platform for presenting history and cultural heritage from a local perspective encourages discussion and debate between different cultures and civilisations.
