in GRASSI Museum Leipzig


REINVENTING GRASSI.SKD: In the coming years we will renew our entire permanent exhibit and more. This is made possible through the programme "Initiative für ethnologische Sammlungen" whose sponsorship we received. That is also the reason why our museum is currently closed and will only reopen in parts on December 2nd with a new presentation. Our events still take place in an accustomed form. On our website and on the social media channels we inform about current offers as well as the progress of our reconstruction.
