The V&A is one of 17 museums across Europe and the Mediterranean participating in a visionary project called Discover Islamic Art. Developed by the Brussels-based consortium Museum With No Frontiers, this groundbreaking online 'virtual museum' brings together over 1200 works of Islamic art and architecture into a single database.

The collection is very broad, with objects in museums from Spain to Syria. This  means that each work can be considered alongside related objects and monuments that in real life may be separated by thousands of miles. Entries written by local scholars provide information about the origin and meaning of the objects, as well as brief bibliographies for further reading.

High-resolution images are accessible at the click of a mouse, enabling the visitor to see objects in greater detail than is often possible in a museum setting.
