Linden Museum is an ethnological museum located in Stuttgart, Germany. It has cultural artifacts from Southeast Asia to Africa, Near East, Pakistan, China, Japan, North and Latin America and finally Oceania.
The museum was opened as a private one in 1911, suffered from World War II and restored in 1950. Since 1973, the museum has been jointly administrated by the city of Stuttgart and the state of Baden-Württemberg.

There was a very interesting section in the museum. Then on the wall you see an offical letter from the Office of His Holiness The Dalai Lama. Apparently back in 1992, a group of Tibetan moncs from Dahramsala came to Linden Museum to perform Sandmandala Vajrabhairava. In the letter you see the permission of HH the Dalai Lama that the museum could preserve it.

An interesting peace was a necklace made of ostrich eggshells!
