Opening in 2019 the Humboldt Forum will create unique spaces for learning, encounters and cultural exchange in the very heart of Berlin.
With the Humboldt Forum, a whole new cultural district is being created in the very heart of the city. From 2019 onwards, various institutions will present their exceptional collections in exhibitions within the Humboldt Forum: the Ethnologisches Museum (Ethnology Museum) and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst (Museum of Asian Art, both are part of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin – Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz), the Berlin Exhibition (Stadtmuseum Berlin and Kulturprojekte Berlin), and the Humboldt Laboratory (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin).
The rich and complex history of the site – Prussian City Palace, parade square, Palace of the Republic, green meadow – is an essential component of the Humboldt Forum.
The Humboldt Forum represents an approach that brings together diverse cultures and perspectives and addresses the multilayered links between Berlin and the world.
