The Museum of Ethnology

Founded in 1806 as the ethnographic collection of the Imperial Cabinet of Natural History, the Museum of Ethnology in Vienna displays its world-wide collections since 1928 in the Corps de Logis wing of the New Castle.
The museum preserves a collection of some 35,000 archaeological and ethnographic objects from North, Middle, and South America dating from approximately 9000 BC to the present, including 16th-century Mexican featherwork, Cook voyage material from the Northwest Coast of North America, and the world's largest collections of early 19th-century Brazilian and Greenland ethnography.
