South Sea Meets Allgäu

In the early 20th century, on his return from the Southern Pacific, Captain Karl Nauer brought shell money, masks, and two precious beetle wing necklaces to the Allgäu. You can admire these works of art in the South Sea Collection. The Obergünzburg Museum provides exciting insights into the cultures of Melanesia and Micronesia. The South Seas Collection has also committed itself to contemporary provenance research in order to specifically analyse German colonial history.
