Oceania: Signs of rites, Symbols of power
December 10, 2009-May 24, 2010
Re-opening of Wereldmuseum Rotterdam


This December the World Museum Rotterdam officially reopens with Oceania, signs of rites, symbols of power. This borrowing from the ING Cultural Centre in Brussels links up perfectly with its own Oceania collection exhibiting the world of the South Pacific in all its diversity. With its Ethnographic collection, the World Museum offers the public a unique place to learn about world cultures, their rituals, stories and sacred objects. The museum presents a permanent display of more than 1.800 world top pieces from Asia, Oceania, America, Africa and the Islamic heritage. With a focus on spirituality its authentic and historic collection fuses with current interests in modern society.
