Since almost 20 years Museum With No Frontiers [MWNF] promotes awareness about the artistic and cultural heritage of Islam, it’s history and interaction with other Civilisations. All MWNF projects and publications are carried out in close cooperation with the concerned local authorities and count on the contribution of renowned local experts.
In connection with our “Islamic Art in the Mediterranean” travel books, we organise thematic tours in cooperation with specialised local travel agents:
