The collection of French ethnology with 250,000 exhibits, which originally located in Paris. As spatial boundaries were hit, the collection was removed into a spectacular new museum in Marseille, south of France, that was opened in 2013.

For the opening of the Museum of the Europeans and Medditerrenean the Senat Chancellery of Berlin contributed a Wall segment from its stock, originally located on Potsdamer Platz.
