Did you know that the oldest artifact at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) is from Mesopotamia and the second oldest one is from Anatolia? Would you like to see some of the objects from Anatolia on display in the Ancient Greek and Roman galleries? Or how about seeing some textile, ceramic, and mosaic from the cultures that called the Near East home.

Come and explore with us art and artifacts from Anatolia and Mesopotamia in the galleries at the MFA.

During a 45-minute interactive tour we will observe various objects and look for traces of geographic, historical, and cultural connections between the civilizations that thrived in this region. We will also visit the Ottoman Room in the MFA’s newly renovated Arts of Islamic Cultures Gallery. This tour is lead by MFA trained Gallery Instructor Hülya Kara.
