Le musée d’Ethnographie de la Société de Géographie d’Égypte

Abstract : The Geographical Society of Egypt was created in Cairo in 1875 in response to the emergence and development of ethnographic and folklore studies in Europe and acted as a channel for promoting these disciplines. In 1898 the Society founded an Ethnography Museum which, for the first half of the 20th century, was the only institution collecting, conserving and exhibiting Egyptian ethnographic objects. In the Bulletin published by this Society, various documents describe the collections, the classification system adopted and the objectives of the museum. The history of this establishment, which was a pioneer in an unimportant discipline, shows the repeated attempts to study the ethnology of Egypt.
