The museum has 18 rooms containing important objects illustrating the habits and customs of different peoples and cultures. It houses items from the Medici dynasty collections and others brought back from important scientific expeditions. Worthy of note are items from the third voyage of James Cook to Polynesia and Arctic America, from the expeditions of Odoardo Beccari to New Guinea, Paolo Mantegazza to India and Lapland, Stephen Sommier to Siberia, Elio Modigliani to Indonesia and Fosco Maraini to Hokkaido Island in Japan. The objects from the North American and Polynesian collections are particularly rare and beautiful.
Further valuable documentation is provided by thousands of photographic images from the late 19th to early 20th centuries.
