Welcome to the Brunei Gallery, SOAS

The Brunei Gallery is an exciting venue in central London that hosts a programme of changing contemporary and historical exhibitions from Asia, Africa and the Middle East. It is open to the public.

Our aim is to present and promote cultures from these regions and to be a student resource and public facility.

Part of Museum Mile, the Brunei Gallery is located on Russell Square opposite the main entrance to SOAS, University of London (School of Oriental and African Studies) and only a three minute walk from the British Museum.

With the permanent displays in the Foyle Special Collections Gallery and the Japanese Roof Garden, The Brunei Gallery makes a stimulating haven in the heart of London.
