About the Museum
With the Humboldt Forum, a whole new cultural district is being created in the very heart of the city. It represents an approach that brings together diverse cultures and perspectives and seeks new insights into topical issues such as migration, religion and globalization.
Thanks to its programme, the Humboldt Forum is already offering visitors an opportunity to experience the world in its entirety. What awaits them is a series of exhibitions, films and discussions with specialists and commentators on science, art, religion, politics and business exploring the day’s burning questions. Whether in the Humboldt-Box or in rather more unexpected locations in Berlin: the Humboldt Forum creates spaces for encounters and exchange.
From 2019 onward the Humboldt Forum’s permanent exhibitions will be on display for all to see: the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst (Staatliche Museen zu Berlin – Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz), the Berlin Exhibition (Stadtmuseum Berlin and Kulturprojekte Berlin), and the Humboldt Laboratory (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin). In combination with the collections located in museums on the neighbouring Museum Island they will form a unique concentration of objects and artworks. At the Humboldt Forum we will also be working closely with other institutions to present some exceptional temporary exhibitions.
