Among Germany's ethnological institutions, the Linden-Museum has one of the richest traditions. It evolved in the late nineteenth century from the Verein für Handelsgeographie (Association for trade geography), which pursued its commercial interests all over the world, but at an early stage also started to collect and maintain objects of artistic and cultural significance. The association still exists as the Gesellschaft für Erd- und Völkerkunde (Society for geography and ethnology) with a status similar to that of Friends of the Linden-Museum.
Today the Linden-Museum is one of the foremost ethnological museums in the world.
