The Museum Five Continents is a museum in Munich with non-European artworks and objects of cultural value. The collection exhibited in the museum dates back in part to 1782, when the curiosities gathered by the Wittelsbachs were exhibited in the galleries of the Residenz. The current collection contains about 150,000 items, related to the life and culture of non-European populations. In particular the Far East, South America and East and Central Africa are important in the Museum Five Continents. Given the size of the collection, many of the objects are displayed in rotation.
