About museum

The museum was created on the basis of a private collection in the house of the Tatar dynasty of Kushaev merchants in the historical district of Kazan called “Old Tatar settlement”.

The museum’s exposition demonstrates historical themes and characters of the “Great Tea Route”. It is a unique collection of tableware and tea utensils, local and imported merchant interiors, and ceremonial attributes of various tea traditions (of China, Japan, England, and Russia) of the 10th-early 20th centuries.
