Do not miss this museum if you have any interest in world cultures, it deserves infinitely greater fame. Located a little out of the centre of Berlin (and easily combined as a day-trip with the nearby Botanical Gardens), in Dahlem, this outstanding museum, displaying the art and artefacts of cultures from every continent, is well organised, beautifully displayed, never crowded, a joy to visit and absolutely worth the minimal effort required to get there. Quite simply, it's one of the greatest ethnographic collections in the world. There is something for everyone here, kids too. Probably too much to view in one day (perhaps a break in the cafe may help?) There are temporary special interest exhibitions too. For those who speak little German, many exhibits are also extensively labelled in English. Staff are helpful and pleasant and there's an excellent bookshop. An enjoyable, stimulating and inspiring contrast to the very overcrowded central museums of the Museumsinsel. The building also houses the Museum of European Cultures and the Museum of Asian Art.
