The Wereldmuseum is a reflection of 160 years of collecting: by Rotterdam, for Rotterdam. These objects span a time period of 2000 years.

Stories about universal human themes like mourning, celebration, ornamentation, prayer, conflict; stories that inspire visitors to find out more about the huge cultural diversity to be found in the world. From Oceania to the Arctic, from Geisha to the Buddha, and from Mecca to Rotterdam: come to Wereldmuseum Rotterdam and discover that, despite cultural differences, we are all essentially the same.
