Musée d’ethnographie Neuchâtel

An offbeat look at our world

The sometimes curious exhibitions of the Ethnographic Museum Neuchâtel take you on a journey between the "Here" and the "Elsewhere". As a place of experience, seeing and experiencing, the museum enables its visitors to reflect on and reinterpret the familiar. This means seeing the world through different eyes.

Permanent exhibit

After two years of renovation work, the Ethnographic Museum reinvents itself and presents its collection from a new perspective. The rooms show eight contrasting perspectives in relation to the collection, museum history and ethnology, and in doing so find their way back again and again to current issues. The makers remind us that the meaning of objects changes constantly over time and in the way they are viewed.

Temporary exhibition: "Ichoumamini" as of 18 May 2019

The new special exhibition is dedicated to the work of the Swiss ethnologist Jean Gabus, in particular his journey to the Caribou Eskimos in Hudson Bay between 1938 and 1939.
