The Linden Museum is one of the largest ethnographic museums in Europe and it is located not far from the Palace Square. It was built in 1911. The idea of its creation belongs to the Association for Trade Geography. The name of the first president of the company, Carl von Linde, is immortalized in the title of the museum. Sadly, but his dream came true only a year after his death.
The permanent exhibition, which includes about 160 thousand showpieces, is divided into five sections: Africa, Islamic East, South and East Asia, Oceania, North and South America. Not only the usual showcases with exhibits, but also the whole composition - which in detail reproduces the iconic elements of foreign cultures – tells about the life and traditions in the countries. The reconstructions of a Tibetan temple, a Japanese tea house and eastern bazaar are very popular among visitors.
