Over the years, many books, newspapers and magazines have given important coverage to the Jalan collection, but the family are not interested in publicity. In the same spirit, this web site has been designed for the information of visitors, and to help with practical details for their visit.

It is advisable to seek permission 48 hours prior to the intended visit date. Visits are preferably in the morning from 9:00 to 11:00, Mondays to Saturdays, and from 10:00 to 16:00 on Sundays.

Please be aware that permission to visit Quila House and the Jalan collection on a given date does not guarantee that the visit will actually take place. The family reserve the right to cancel an appointment if an unforeseen family event arises, which is deemed to take precedence. Although efforts will be made to contact prospective visitors in such cases, the family declines any obligation originating from the cancellation of an appointment.
