The museum (Musée d’ethnographie Neuchâtel, MEN) houses some 50,000 objects, about half of which are represented by African collections from East and South Africa, Angola of the 1930s, Sahara and Sahel (Tuaregs and Moors) and Gabon. It also holds Asian, Eskimo and Oceania collections, non-European musical instruments and pieces from ancient Egypt. Since 1984, its collection of industrial objects of everyday consumption – manufactured in the four corners of a globalised world – has become increasingly important.
