America on the move

The America of the 21st century, the differences between North and Latin America in politics, economy, and culture, as well as the formative power of religion, are explained in the context of the various waves of immigration since 1492. A retrospective look at the geological and climatic changes shows, however, that internal migrations have also had a major impact on the development of the habitats of the animal and plant world. The exhibition area Immigration is followed by the thematic complexes Religion, Politics and Society, and World Trade. Finally, domestic American issues are considered in their global implications.
