About the Museum


Formerly known as the Museum voor Land en Volkerkunde, the Wereldmuseum is an ethnographic museum situated in the heart of Rotterdam. Driven by the city’s cultural diversity, the Wereldmuseum seeks to offer insights into history and culture from across the globe. Dating from 1885, its impressive collection boasts over 1,800 objects spanning more than two millennia and ranging from ancient artefacts from Mexican temples to contemporary work by Syrian artists. The museum’s stunning 19th century building is located on the River Maas and is currently undergoing a major refurbishment in collaboration with the Museum Volkenkunde in Leiden, Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam, and Africa Museum in Nijmegen.
