African Chief pipe
The collection, which was started through a private initiative some 50 years ago, showcases pipes from all over the world: from Mexico to Japan and from Lapland to South Africa. Admire the earliest known pipe in the world, unearthed in Ecuador and which was made 2,500 years ago. Marvel at the design of European pipes and the unique art form their carving represents. A ceremonial royal pipe from Cameroon, adorned with 27,500 colored glass beads, is one of the museum’s highlights. In the museum you will also find many examples of stummel pipes of the “common man”. A visit to the museum is a world tour of pipe-smoking culture from all eras of history.
