MARKK Hamburg

Museum am Rothenbaum / Cultures and Art of the World

The MARKK Hamburg (former Museum of Ethnology) awaits visitors with countless artefacts from different peoples as well as exciting special exhibitions on cultures from different continents.

Founded in 1879, the Museum für Völkerkunde (Museum of Anthropology) is one of Europe’s largest anthropological museums. Its collections comprise approx. 700,000 objects and document the art and cultural histories of the peoples of the world.

The Museum für Völkerkunde in Hamburg sees itself as a meeting place for people of all cultures. Visitors here encounter the most diverse cultures of the world. The museum houses cultural artefacts from all parts of the earth: Whether it's Indian masks from North America, statues from ancient Egypt or carvings by the Maoris of New Zealand – treasures from the entire world can be seen here. The visit becomes a thrilling journey round the world, and you are constantly immersed in history.

Diverse festivals, concerts and markets make it a unique meeting point for people from every part of the world. Visitors enjoy international delicacies in the adjoining restaurant "Okzident".

The Museum of Anthropology has one of the largest collections in Germany. Especially popular is the permanent exhibition about the native Indians of Central and South America. Valuable treasures and stone sculptures of the Aztecs and Mayas can be seen here, not to mention everyday items such as textiles and pots. The Middle East collection has beautiful glass paintings; the Asia Department draws visitors with its Samurai armour and Buddha statues. Those on the trail of magic and sorcery can visit the witches' archive: This takes you back in time to the European Middle Ages and you learns something about the superstitions of the time.

In addition, the Museum of Anthropology in Hamburg has special offers for children: Weekends in the museum offer children the opportunity to make arts and crafts in a workshop, and afterwards they can take their artworks home with them. Also exciting for the children are the numerous films. Of particular interest to the little researchers is that they can celebrate their birthdays in the museum, and to top it all off they go on a treasure hunt.
