Overview

Our society needs places that confront the way of life, diversity, ancient and present forms of coexistence of people from a variety of cultural backgrounds. This is not just about "amazement" but about making a connection with one's individual life and experience - and locating one's own views. The Museum der Völker is supposed to be a vibrant space addressing socially and culturally relevant topics.

Nice architecture, some great objects from Africa and Asia on display (collection of Gerd Chesi). If you have a chance and Mr. Chesi will give you a personal tour you are in for a treat. Unfortunately not a lot of English material available.
