Abstract: Despite spanning a remarkable variety of properties (e.g., mass, metallicity and horizontal branch morphology), severe and variable extinction has often thwarted detailed analyses of the globular clusters of the Milky Way bulge. We present results from recent and ongoing investigations of these clusters using deep, wide-field near-infrared photometry independently, and also in combination with, the plethora of existing photometry and spectroscopy. The results and their homogeneity facilitate not only the characterization of relations between cluster photometric properties and abundances and comparison to evolutionary models, but can also corroborate and further constrain recent results regarding the extinction law of the inner Milky Way.
