Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich

Temporary closing of all University Museums

Dear Visitors


Given the current circumstances the Ethnographic Museum at the University of Zurich will remain closed until further communication.

All public events are canceled. This measure is provisionally valid until the end of May 2020. We keep you further informed via our website and our electronic newsletter. For further questions, please contact:

In this extraordinary situation we cordially invite you to visit our extended museum room. For some time now we have been documenting our exhibitions digitally. These 360° documentaries are part of the Ethnographic Museum's strategy to share with members of the originator societies of our collections, but also with you, our audience.

The library is also closed to the public until further notice. A contact-free service is maintained for members of the University of Zurich. For information please contact:

We look forward to welcome you virtually and wish you all the best and good health.

The Director and the Team of the Ethnographic Museum
