The collection of the Wereldmuseum Rotterdam (World Art Museum) has been assembled over the years since 1885 and amounts to approximately 200,000 items. In terms of scope and quality the collection is one of the most important in Western Europe. The museum wants not only to keep the past in focus but also to indicate interesting cultural developments taking place today and tomorrow. Since the end of the eighties, contemporary art, photography and film are an essential component of the new collection policy. The prize pieces of the collection are brought together in the new museum in the permanent collection: 'Treasury'.
