With over 200,000 objects, the Grassi Museum owns one of the largest ethnographic collections in Germany. The exotic, valuable and to some extent internationally unique exhibits depict the art and lifestyles of almost all cultures of the world.

In addition to the research aspect, the museum includes a library with a variety of ethnic literature and a restoration workshop for the preservation of museum objects.

The GRASSI Museum of Ethnology has some special offers for children, such as very special tours behind the scenes of the museum!
