The Sackler is the place to peruse ancient objects, from Romanic gambling artefacts to ancient coins. With two floors of display cases and one floor for special exhibitions, the museum is dedicated to Asian, Islamic and later Indian art. It houses the widest collection of Chinese jades outside China, an unrivalled showcase of Korean ceramics, and an outstanding collection of Thai illuminated manuscripts. The large permanent collections are displayed on a rotating basis.
