Art and Artifacts From Around the World
With more than 150,000 artifacts from more than 100 countries, the Museum of International Folk Art holds the largest collection of folk art in the world. The enormous exhibition includes an enormous breadth of cultural items. You’ll see textile art, masks, toys, beadwork, religious objects, traditional costuming, and more.
While the museum is packed with local works, it also encompasses a more global cultural experience. You may wander into an exhibition of traditional Scandinavian or a collection of Japanese Yōkai masks on your way between Mexican textiles and indigenous dolls. Broaden your horizons and see the world through the eyes of peoples from around the globe as you dig into the enormous selection on display.
