Interior View, Museum Europäischer Kulturen

The Museum Europäischer Kulturen is dedicated to preserving, researching and promoting artefacts of everyday European culture from the 18th century to today. By focusing on culture rather than language or borders, the museum aims to facilitate encounters between diverse groups of people, at the same time making connections with the historical factors that influence our culture today. The museum’s vast collection – numbering some 280,000 objects – is one of the largest of its kind in Europe and includes rare historical objects from ethnic minorities such as the Sami and the Crimean Tatars. The museum is divided into sections devoted to ‘naive art’, childhood and youth culture, rituals and religions, and more, aiming to encompass all aspects of European culture.
