The Ethnological Museum Dahlem (until 1999, Museum für Völkerkunde) is one of the largest ethnological museums in the world. It houses half a million preindustrial objects, acquired primarily during German voyages of exploration and colonialization undertaken in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In 2019, the museum with 20,000 objects will move from Dahlem to the Berlin city center, into the newly built Humboldt-Forum, a contemporary reconstruction of the Berliner Schloss, or Berlin Palace.
