A rice barn from Indonesia greets you in the foyer of Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum, but that's just the beginning of your journey into the cultures of other lands. People in Their Worlds is the permanent exhibit that draws you in through displays with scrolling touch screens, introducing you to artifacts in your native language. The ethnographic displays approach world cultures from two standpoints: experiencing the world and shaping it. This dynamic exhibit is accompanied by temporary displays that highlight the lives of people in one region or culture.

  • Also if you don't like history, but want to get to know other cultures, then it is definitely a recommend. Only the large, new, imposing building is a must. New techniques have been used and very spacious.
