TOPICS IN THE HARRER MUSEUM – GROUND FLOOR & 3RD FLOOR
DISCOVERIES IN THE SHOW DEPOT – WORLD CULTURES
The Schaudepot is not an exhibition in the classical sense – therefore there are no detailed descriptions and explanations of the individual objects.
The purpose of a Schaudepot is to make those objects that are not currently used for exhibitions visible to visitors in a climatically stable environment. Many of the treasures gathered here were previously housed in depot rooms not accessible to the public.
Most of the ethnographies exhibited here were collected by Heinrich Harrer himself during his expeditions and travels. You will find selected collections from the following regions:
Tibet / 1944-1951
Western New Guinea / 1962
Rio Xingu / 1966
Suriname / 1966
French Guyana / 1969
Andaman Islands / 1974
In addition, there are objects here that do not originate from Heinrich Harrer as a collector, but are part of numerous donations to the HHM. They come from Nepal, Tibet, China, India, Mongolia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir and Papua New Guinea.
