  • In October, many halls were closed to the public. Because of this, moving the Museum seemed ill-conceived and illogical. I am interested in were the ancient halls of America and Africa. In the building there is a restaurant (large plate soup ~ 5 euro) and a café. A lot of supervisors.

  • If you are interested in ethnography and Asian Art, then this is well worth a visit. The leafy suburb of Dahlem where it is located, is also very pleasant in itself, and a nice contrast with central B...  read more »
  • Complex of museums (Museum of Ethnology, Asian Art Museum and the Museum of European cultures) is located in the former pomest′i Dahlem, in Southwest Berlin district of Steglitz-Zehlendorf district, next to the Metro station "Dahlem-Dorf". By the way, Hall Metro-pretty village house where at the exit there is a mini-café with coffee and muffins! Tranquil Museum-and for good reason: a great number of exhibits of the pre-industrial era collected by German explorers in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century (America, Africa, and Oceania). For lovers of Africa-so much! But Beninese bronze ware is generally something incredible ... In the Asian Museum: amazing collection of Indian art, as well as arts and crafts objects from East Asia (reconstruction of dwellings, Pantheon of gods and even ethnic music ...). The Museum of European cultures was, however, closed. Then, loaded with wonderful impressions, a pleasure to dine overlooking the courtyard with stunning arch ... And the output-bookshop: books on the art of discount ...

  • Very nice collection. If you are interested in ethnology and anthropology, then you must visit.
  • Wonderful museum, definitevely worth going there. Be ready to be fascinated. It is a huge museum.
  • Fascinating museum, witness to crafts, arts and cultures which no longer exist in the world. Beautiful sections on Polynesia/Melanesia (the boats are a must), Mesoamerica, Africa and the fascinating reconstruction of an ancient Buddhist cave-temple from northern China, including some of the original artwork from 5th century CE,plus a small but good exhibition of musical instruments including a complete Javan gamelan orchestra; while I was there some young people were practising on these instruments: extraordinary sound! You can spend a day there.
  • This is my favourite place un Berlín. You can enjoy the Spree river surrounding you and visit the awesome museums and Catedral (Berliner Dom).
  • A very interesting Museum in Nice premises. Particularly the Department of Melanesia and the illustrations from Japan & China are worth a visit. More information about sources from which come the various objects would be what I would find interesting.
