The myth Karl May in dioramas

The Museum of Cultural History in the Museumsquartier Osnabrück dedicates an exhibition to the writer Karl May from January 26 until juni 2 of 2019. It leads into the midst of the exotic worlds that May imagined - with the aid of small and larger dioramas that retell scenes from the Winnetou novels in miniature.

Especially in the 1950s and 1960s, the stories about Winnetou and Old Shatterhand in Germany were very popular. There were also miniatures in all sorts.
The museum shows many and also the cultural-historical story behind Karl May's books.
