  The ethnographic museum of Kazan University

  
  The ethnographic museum of Kazan University was founded in the beginning of the XIX century as a cabinet of rarities. Various ancient pieces were stored in it. As a result, the museum got its ethnographic type.
  
  The museum takes its origin from the Eastern department of the university. During the first half of the XIX century, numerous household items brought by the university scientists from trips to the Pacific, Mongolia, Tibet, and China were added to the museum's collections.
  
  In the middle of the XIX century due to the Eastern section's relocation to Petersburg University, the ethnographic collections were transferred to the chair of Russian history, where the museum of Motherland study was established. This museum's collections continued to get bigger with all kinds of ethnographic things describing the culture and life of different peoples of Russia, especially the Siberia and multinational Volga region.
  
  In 1878, the Society of Archeology, History, and Ethnography was established at Kazan university. The key objectives of this society were local area studies. Later, numerous trips to Central Asia, Siberia and Far East were organized.
  
  As a part of the Society, an ethnographic museum was established and numerous ethnographic collections on Turkic and Finno-Ugric peoples of the Volga region were given to the museum. Moreover, many Siberian peoples' household and shaman cult items became a part of the museum's collections.
