About the Johann Jacobs Museum
The Johann Jacobs Museum has dedicated itself to shedding light on the global interconnections of the world we live in. These interdependencies become particularly apparent when tracing the history of influential goods and their trade routes. Products such as coffee, cocoa, oil, opium, sugar, silk, watches, and diamonds have molded the face of the planet, shaped cultures, and transformed societies. We hope to foster a broader understanding of these complex interconnections with our programs and events.
