Online Collections at the Humboldt Forum

Collections Online presents all the objects and collections on display at the Humboldt Forum, in digital form. Experience the "History of the Site", and the "After Nature", "BERLIN GLOBAL" and the temporary exhibitions.

Our digital presentation of the collections will be continuously extended and updated to keep in step with the gradual opening of the building. Exhibitions from the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin displaying collections from the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst, as well as from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Stiftung Stadtmuseum Berlin and Kulturprojekte Berlin will in future be available to view online.

There will not only be individual objects available; thematically structured object catalogues offer the opportunity to research a large stock of objects related to art history, cultural history, and ethnological and natural history. You can explore the historical context of objects across the collections, and there will always be something new to learn, as the illustrations and descriptions will be continually updated. New functions and filter options will continuously enhance the user experience to make it easier to search for and find information before, during and after a visit to the Humboldt Forum.
