The Wereldmuseum (World Museum) in Rotterdam is quite small, but it features a great collection. They exhibit objects from a wide variety of civilizations. Among others, they feature collections from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Oceania. It is a bit pricey (15 euros) but still really recommended!
