The collections of the Ethnological Museum (Ethnologisches Museum) comprise outstanding examples of material and immaterial goods that were created outside of Europe and brought to Berlin in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Divided into geographic regions and arranged in thematic displays, the presentations of the collections convey fascinating insights into the diversity of non-European cultures:
The exhibition 'Art from Africa' portrays developments in African art history, illustrating the religious and social significance of sculptures and everyday objects, while 'Africa in Berlin' takes a closer look at the manifold relations between Africa and Europe. Archaeological artefacts featured in the exhibition 'American Archaeology' – ranging from painted pottery to stone figures of gods and exquisite gold objects – date from as far back as 2000 BCE and demonstrate the rich cultural heritage of pre-Spanish cultures in Central and South America. A particular attraction is the presentation of the South Seas collection. True-to-scale exhibits of boats and spectacular houses typical of Oceania recreate the atmosphere of the Pacific islands. The vivid colour and variety of artistic expression is revealed through the exhibition of objects and artworks, ranging from ceramic vessels to photographs.
