The Wereldmuseum Amsterdam is a museum about world cultures, housed in one of the most beautiful museum buildings in the Netherlands. The impressive national monument located on the Oosterpark, in the heart of Amsterdam East, dates from 1926
The imposing central Light Hall offers a wide view of what the museum has to offer: an extensive permanent exhibition and regularly changing exhibitions in which the objects each tell a human story. Stories about universal human themes such as mourning, celebrating, decorating, praying or fighting. They arouse curiosity about the enormous cultural diversity of the world. In the Wereldmuseum you will discover that apart from the differences, we are all the same: human beings.
