Museum für Asiatische Kunst der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin
The district of Berlin-Dahlem is home to the Ethnologisches Museum (Ethnological Museum) and the Museum of Asian Art, which house the city's collections of non-European art and culture. This group of collections, internationally the most significant of its kind in terms of scope, quality and symmetry, was planned as a museum centre as early as the beginning of the 20th century, although its construction did not commence until the 1970s. The Museum of European Cultures has been housed in the same building since May 2005.
