The Dahlem museum is set in a very affluent area, south west of Berlin. It is here where the Free University of Berlin is situated, as well as many other institutes of higher education.
The Dahlem museum is really a collection of several museums, all located in the same complex within the University. These include the Museum for Asian Art, the Museum of Far Eastern Art and the Museum for Indian Art. There is also a Museum of European Cultures that was created in 1999 with the merger of the European and Folklore collections. It houses more than 270,000 artifacts depicting European culture and history.
The Ethnological Museum complex takes up most of the main building's floor space. It is said to have the best ethnological collection in the world, with over half a million artifacts on display. These have been collected from all over the globe.
There are three main permanent exhibits. These are Australian and South Sea cultures, North American cultures and Central and South American cultures.
Many of the exhibits are from the now extinct Mayan, Aztec and Incan cultures of South America. There are also significant treasures for countries such as Africa, America, Australia and the Pacific region cultures represented here.
The museum is one of the best in the city and contains one of the most comprehensive and diverse collections of artifacts in the world. It would take more than a day to view all the collections.
