‘Longing for Mecca’ permanent in Leiden

Kossmann.dejong has been invited by the National Museum of Ethnology to embed the temporary exhibition ‘Longing for Mecca – The Pilgrim’s Journey’ in the museum’s permanent display. The exhibition, which ran between September 2013 and March 2014, attracted a very diverse audience: from dedicated to less experienced museum visitors, and more specifically members of the Muslim community. Therefore the museum was also recently awarded the Museum Award 2014 of the province of Zuid-Holland.
