The collections of the Museum für Asiatische Kunst and Ethnologisches Museum are going to be viewable for visitors during the move to the Humboldt Forum.

“On the Way to Humboldt Forum” is the name of a series of dialogic special exhibitions, displays, and events that will take place until 2019 at the Kulturforum and the Museumsinsel, involving the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin's two non-European collections.
