  • If you've already been to the other large museums that cover this subject (I.e. British Museum, Quai-Branly, the Berlin one in Dahlem and the Met in NYC) then chances are you won't find this particula...  more »
  • To see permanent exhibitions (without temporary exhibitions), it is necessary to allocate around 3:00. The Museum has a café, Museum Shop for wardrobe prepare coins in 1 euro and is visiting this Museum in Sun-admission is 1 euro. Exposition devoted to Myanmar, Oceania, Africa, Islam, Indians of South and North America. The most interesting and colorful Exposition-about Myanmar, other relatively modest or small. From the second floor of the Museum with beautiful views of the city. Museum recalls the ethnographic part of the Kunstkammer in Saint Petersburg.

  • "Five continents" Ethnological Museum houses an excellent collection of exhibits from all (surprising?) Continents. The Museum for its superb special exhibitions is known and you have for long years at the highest level. About the permanent exhibitions be forgotten unfortunately wrongly, which are the real core of each museum. Also here it has noted here expressly "Five continents" Museum to offer outstanding and this, which is, even in an international comparison. The permanent exhibitions are fantastic presents. Lighting and marking of exhibits are exemplary, lyrically precise and written in particular so that they slide off not in the academic. Very important: between the individual exhibits leaving room, because less is more. So the exhibits are even better. A special highlight for enthusiasts is certainly the small space that is dedicated to Nuristan. The issued wooden figures that were once as ancestral figures at the graves of the Kalash (settlement area in northern Afghanistan/Pakistan) are a rarity. Three, here you can see life-size figures and, even rarer, a tab character after the Taliban destroyed the Kabul Museum with its collection of excellent and you also no longer to Peshawar for security reasons would like to travel to visit the local Museum, which has also an exorbitant collection of ancestral figures, remains the only thing the Museum of five cultures in Munich. To make the measure fully: the Museum is located in a beautiful building which also thickens the atmosphere. "Cream swab" are nicely decorated Café and especially the enchanting and adapted stylistically to the exhibits Museum shop with a good offer. Since many Museum can be a slice of cut off. The magical British lady, who here sold in the Museum Shop, has set extra accents in our long conversation. Anyway: great compliment to the staff in the "five continents Museum". All are friendly and helpful. Very special thanks to Mr Martin, of me before the Orient Department so qualified guidance was, as I have experienced it in still no German Museum. For me, the "five continents" is Museum of one of the best ethnological museums worldwide. The next time I'm with not only time, but also my wife.

  • It's a smaller museum but for only 5 euro, it's a great way to spend a few hours, especially if you enjoy Buddhist statuary. Very quiet when I visited, and they had lockers for luggage/coats for an additional 1euro.
  • The statue of Buddha on the stairs up to the exhibit makes the visit worthwhile. Breathtaking.
  • Excelent ethnographic museum, very interesting!
  • Great overview of different cultures, lot's of inspiration and we also enjoyed to draw on one of the drawing chairs!
  • Super interesting exhibition! If one is travelling in Munich and thought about which Museum to visit, this must be definitely on the list.
