  • Museum I visited in continuity other museums of the Museumufer in Frankfurt. My visit was fast enough (about 1 hour). I can unfortunately not actually say I learned new things by visiting this place. I visited this place on the occasion of the museums in Frankfurt in August 2018. In 3 days I visited a large number of museums for 7 euros only.

  • It's a very small and quite specific collection of world cultures, apparently (I only saw artifacts from indian tribes from pacific islands and South America). Plus, the descriptions are quite confusing, so I was quite annoyed trying to find what each item served for and its origin. The temporary exhibition was on ageing, which was ok, but nothing too amusing for my taste. I was expecting a lot more before visiting and was a bit disappointed. Nonetheless, the receptionist was very polite, friendly and helpful. Thanks!
  • Dealing with such a collection in a postcolonial world is difficult, but the two exhibits I've visited so far did their best to be sensitive and transparent. Don't forget to check out the library! I lost a day and a half in there. Keep in mind that they do have certain areas of expertise...I was looking for information on carribean culture of the taíno and I only found three books.
