[Translate to English:] Sammler und Missionare
The permanent exhibition, which was opened in 2003, is entitled Ethnography and the Herrnhut Mission. At the heart of the exhibition are approximately 1200 objects from those peoples among whom the Moravian Church missionaries were active from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. Also, individual missionaries are showcased with a view to their ethnographic activities and their valuable missionary writings. For example, in the south of Africa, the Herrnhut native Georg Schmidt was active as the first Protestant missionary among the Khoikhoi from 1738 to 1744.
