Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) runs a multinational online museum providing access to a Permanent Collection, Exhibitions and Database. A strong focus is on the artistic legacy of Islam. We are currently setting up a new Islamic Dynasties section, where users have access to a profile of the Dynasty and to relevant material in our database. For most of the Dynasties the profiles were compiled by our Partner Museums but some are missing and we are looking for help to finish this. Here some links:

Typically profiles are between one page and one page and a half (1500 to 3000 characters, including punctuation).

Mission Statement

Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) builds bridges through knowledge and understanding. MWNF has 20 years of experience in "rewriting history" beyond narrow nationalist agendas and promoting a new, inclusive vision of history that highlights exchanges and cooperation between cultures in areas as diverse as archaeology, art and culture, economy and social life. Against the backdrop of contemporary global challenges and conflicts, MWNF projects demonstrate the far-reaching potential of cultural heritage in building intercultural bridges in the name of peace.

Description

Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) was founded in 1994. Since the beginning, the idea was to overcome any kind of conventional 'boarder' and to create an exhibition space where well-known and unknown, small and large, secure and insecure, rich and poor could not only coexist but would complement each other, generating mutual benefit for all concerned.

The MWNF program is built around two main activities: the MWNF Virtual Museum including different thematic sections and the MWNF travel guides, focusing on little known aspects of cultural heritage.

MWNF is an independent non-profit organization, relying mainly on volunteer resources. The legal seat is established in Vienna, Austria.

The network set up by MWNF includes public and private Partners from all around the world.
