Visitors are presented with a diverse collection of treasures from different cultures, all around the world. The museum not only highlights the beauty of centuries-old artefacts, but also draws links between the objects and the social life of the time. The anthropologists responsible for curating the exhibitions aim to help visits discern and understand social change through the exhibits.
