Die Ausstellung besteht aus Leihgaben des "The British Museum", London, und des "Museo de América", Madrid. Anhand dieser Objekte wird ein Weg durch die Geschichte der verschiedenen Kulturen unserer Welt gezeichnet.

Die Exponate zeichnen sich durch ihren künstlerischen Wert und ihre geschichtliche Bedeutung aus. Mich hat es zum Beispiel u.A. beeindruckt, eine Replika des Steins von Rosetta zu sehen.


Bevor man die Ausstellung in Richtung "Museum-Shop" verlässt, kommt man einem grossen Zeitstrahl vorbei, anhand der man nochmals die Geschichte, die man soeben durchschritten hat, Revue passieren lassen kann.

Leider ist es nicht gestattat, Fotos zu machen, deshalb habe ich einige Fotos aus dem offiziellen Prospekt und die englischen Beschreibungen eingefügt.

Der Eintritt kostet 6 Euro für Erwachsene und 3 fúr Kinder/Rentner. Ein Audioführer, der in etwa 16 Stationen weitere Informationen gibt, kostet weitere 3 Euro (in Englisch, Französisch und Spanisch). Alle Beschreibungen sind auf Spanisch, deshalb würde ich allen nicht Spanischsprechenden empfehlen, einen Audioführer zu leihen.

Die Ausstellung ist sehr stilvoll inszeniert, in einer grossen alten Halle mit vielen Säulen, sind die sieben Bereiche in sich abgetrennt. Durch Beleuchtungen, Projetionen und Hintergrundmusik wird man in die Welt unserer Vorfahren entführt und es fällt einem schwer, nachher wieder "aufzutauchen" in die hektische Welt der Plaza Castilla.

Ich war ungefähr zwei Stunden, und die Zeit ist wie im Fluge vergangen.

Eintrittszeiten: Täglich von 10 - 21 Uhr


Metro: Plaza Castilla

2.1. The Ancient Near East
The Ancient Near East has played a vital role in the development of the world we live in today. The development of farming led to growth of cities, trade, bureaucracy, religion, politics and technology. The rich and diverse artefacts displayed here record these achievements and events.

2.3. Byzantium and its Legacy
Byzantium was the successor to the Roman Empire in the eastern Mediterranean. A rich Christian art and culture emerged in this ‘New Rome’ that was drawn from pagan, Jewish and classical sources.

2.2. The Islamic Middle East
Wide-ranging forms of Islamic art have developed since the emergence of Islam in the 7th century AD. These include both court pieces as well as works of religious art, reflecting Islam’s role both as a religion and a political system.

New lifestyles emerged in Europe with the  appearance of the first settled farming communities. People made, displayed and traded valuable objects which reflected both personal wealth and political power. They could also be given as gifts to the gods.

3.2. Ancient Greece
The ideas and achievements of the ancient Greeks, particularly during the 5th century BC, have provided the foundation of Western civilisation and left an enduring legacy for all humanity. The exceptional objects shown here explore Greek art, mythology and belief, war and trade.

3.3. Ancient Rome
Originally a small city, Rome developed into a republican state before becoming one of the mightiest empires of the ancient world. The vast territories brought under Roman control included rich cities filled with art, and its peoples were connected by a common Greco-Roman culture .

3.4. Early Middle Ages
Starting from around 1100 new nations formed, agriculture developed and trade expanded across Europe. Learning and the arts also grew. The exquisite artefacts seen here reflect the importance of the Catholic church at this time as well as the skills of Medieval craft workers.

3.5. Late Middle Ages
Starting from around 1100 new nations formed, agriculture developed and trade expanded across Europe. Learning and the arts also grew. The exquisite artefacts seen here reflect the importance of the Catholic church at this time as well as the skills of Medieval craft workers.

3.6. Europe 1500-1900
The period from 1500-1900 was an age of great artistic, intellectual and economic achievement. The learning of the classical era was rediscovered and great scientific and technological advances were made. European explorers, traders and colonists dominated much of the world, imposing their values, technology and politics upon it.

 4.1. China
China is the largest and oldest continuing civilisation in the world. Over thousands of years its society has been united by a single written language, common beliefs and ritual codes. Famous for its arts, manufactured goods and technological achievements, China today is one of the greatest economic powers in the world.

4.2. Japón
The arts and crafts of Japan have been shaped by continuity and change since ancient times.. Through extensive cultural exchange over hundreds of years, Japan has become a thriving modern, high-technology society whilst continuing to celebrate many elements of its traditional culture.

4.3. Korea
Positioned between China, Russia and Japan, Korea’s geography has played a vital role in establishing its diverse cultural heritage. The Koryo dynasty (AD 918-1392) is regarded as a golden period of cultural and artistic achievement, when ceramic wares of great originality and beauty were created.

4.4. Southeast Asia
The rich cultural traditions of Southeast Asia have been shaped both by regional powers and through contact with foreign traders and occupiers, especially from China and India. On the Indonesian island of Java, the musical tradition of gamelan reflects the interaction of Hindu, Islamic, European, Chinese and Malay cultural

4.5. South Asia
South Asia is a region of great linguistic and regional diversity but has been culturally linked for more than 2000 years. The artistic heritage of the region reflects its importance as a centre for many of the world’s great religious traditions, most notably Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism.

5 - OZEANIEN

Diverse and complex cultures developed across the island nations of the Pacific Ocean and in Australia starting from 45,000 years ago. Throughout the region people have used objects to express power, rank and religious belief. These ideas are apparent in the creativity and beauty of the objects explored here.
6 - DIE AMERIKAS

6.1. South and Central America
Prior to European contact in the 1500s many advanced societies evolved across Mexico, Central and South America. Regional kingdoms and empires emerged who built great cities and monuments, and crafted sophisticated works of art in textile, ceramic and precious metals.

The art of the present era documents human experience in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. Some of the modern and contemporary works in the British Museum collection are innovative in form and meaning, while others reflect artistic traditions that have survived for thousands of years.
