Founded in 1862, the State Museum for Ethnology in Munich is the oldest of its kind in Germany. Today it is home to over 160,000 items of ethnographic interest and works of art from non-European peoples, 135,000 photographic documents and a library comprising over 100,000 books. On the basis of our collections we show the similarities and differences between cultures from Africa, America, Asia, Australia, the Near and Middle East, the South Seas and Europe. We stand for open-minded-ness, cultural dialogue and respect for people from across the world. With our permanent displays, special exhibitions and events we invite you to discover the uniqueness and diversity of cultures and the people who shape them. Let us take you away to unfamiliar worlds on Munich’s Maximilianstraße.
Find out about what connects the living situations in non-European cultures and those on our own doorstep in the Museum for Ethnology.
