In 2013, Museum Nusantara in Delft closed its doors and was therefore in search of a new destination for its collection: approximately 18,000 objects that many regard as the shared heritage of Indonesia and the Netherlands.

Our year-round schedule of events tailored to academics and students includes lectures, workshops, conferences, master classes and expert meetings. These also include events organized around specific collections (Collection Study Days) and research networks (Labs).

Ethnographic collections are spaces for histories of relations, colonial relations, knowledges, desires, lifeworlds, materials, and techniques.
