Museum der Weltkulturen, Frankfurt

Museum der Weltkulturen, Frankfurt

The Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt am Main was founded in 1904 and boasts a unique collection of 67,000 artifacts from all over the world. Located in three nineteenth-century villas on Frankfurt’s museum embankment, the Museum produces public exhibitions, offers scientists, authors and artists new research commissions and develops innovative educational concepts. In the exhibition year 2012 the Museum enters new conceptual ground next to its “classic” exhibition operations: selected international artists and fashion designers prepare exhibitions in which century-old artifacts are reinterpreted in the context of our time. With the guidance of the museum curators and international guests, the visitors are invited to creatively delve into global questions.
