A curated collection of contemporary art has also been added to paint a fuller picture of Central Africa, past and present. Visit the new temporary exhibition Human Zoo. The age of colonial exhibitions recounts the now-forgotten history of persons put on display as ‘living exhibits’, illustrated by exceptional images and documents that in some cases are on public view for the first time. While the exhibition focuses on the ‘Congolese villages’ of Tervuren, Antwerp (1885 and 1894) and Brussels (1958), it also zooms out to show the phenomenon’s truly global context. Persons from all over the world were exhibited in ‘human zoos’, and some lost their lives in the West.

What people are saying about Brussels

Great chocolate making workshop, we very much enjoyed it and can highly recommend it. Two and half hours might seem like a lot of time to dedicate from your probably busy vacation schedule, but it is definitely worth it. It was one of our highlights from our Brussels trip. The instructor, Mariah (if I remember her name correctly), was amazing and took the workshop to another level.

This workshop was so much fun! Lisa was so great!! Couldn't recommend her more. If I'm ever back in Brussels, I would do this again. Lisa made the whole thing so enjoyable and even if you struggle with the chocolate making she has great patience to help you. Thank you Lisa!!

This place was super fun! We have kids ranging from 12-2 and they all loved it. I honestly thought this place was going to be a bust BUT I WAS WRONG. So worth it

Maria manage our workshop with energy, humor and spot on preparation. We were her very first solo workshop. Easy from city center. Thanks Maria! Memorable

The workshop was lots of fun and he museum was very interesting. I’d recommend this experience to anyone going to Brussels
