  • Many of the exhibits are in the process of being moved to a museum in central Berlin. Absolutely fantastic collections! Also has topical exhibits such as one of photos and interiews with European seni...  more »
  • Yes, some collections are closed before the move, but it is also so enough exhibition material for an afternoon with event character. Today there was this Cuban son music. - and the entire Dezembet also a Christmas market with a nice variety of handicrafts from different regions of the world. 8 well designed euro. Tip: A few steps further in the domain Dahlem there were coupons for '2 for 1' occurs. We had unfortunately runs the sequence :)

  • My second favorite state museum in Berlin. A fantastic range of collections, wonderful curating and presentation. Being redesigned at the moment, so I can't wait to see what the future holds for this wonderful museum.
  • Fair ticket pricing, huge collection. Unfortunately only half of the descriptions are English, and hopefully the new museum will be more critical to the question of how these artifacts ended up in the museum.
  • 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.
