The term 'Islamic' is used in Room 34 to define the culture of peoples living in lands where the dominant religion is Islam. The displays explore Islamic faith, art, calligraphy and science, and Islam's prominence amongst world cultures. Objects such as gilded glass mosque lamps, tiles featuring calligraphic decoration, metalwork and early scientific instruments give a geographical and chronological view of the history and art of the Islamic lands. There is also a changing display of works on paper.
