Full description
Easily accessible by public transportation from Brussels, the Africa Museum tells the story of human and natural history with a collection of artifacts from the colonial era in central Africa.  Aiming to objectively frame the art and cultural objects acquired during Belgium's rule in Rwanda and Congo, the museum has undergone extensive renovations and is now open to the public. Topics of colonial history, sustainable development and biodiversity are now addressed head-on following the museum's redesign. A curated collection of contemporary art has also been added to paint a fuller picture of Central Africa, past and present. Your entry ticket will give you access to walk the French gardens, browse collections of artifacts that bring the past to life in the remodeled, and see the contemporary African art.

Belle rénovation du musée et esprit nouveau qui l'anime fort intéressant. Nous n'avons visité qu'une partie, car c'est très vaste comme exposition Ce qui nous a notamment touchés, ce sont les témoignages vidéo de personnes de différents âges qui racontent ce qu'ils/elles ont vécu : rites de passages, cérémonies variées, le mariage, etc... Cela ajoute beaucoup de vie aux objets qui entourent les visiteurs. Le regard plus objectif sur la colonisation et ce qu'elle a apporté/enlevé au Congo donne également un sens actuel enrichi à l'ensemble de l'exposition. Rien n'est blanc ou noir : important de comprendre les nuances de tout vécu.J'ai acheté sur place et lu avec intérêt le livre de Lieve Joris 'Mon oncle du Congo' et cela m'a permis- moi qui n'ai jamais été en Afrique-de m'y immerger profondément. Revu également le DVD Congo River...

Bezoek was top! Voorstelling is zeer mooi opgedeeld in de verschillende thema's die aan bod kwamen. Er werd voldoende ruimte benut door gebruik te maken van de verschillende zalen, zeer mooi gebouw. Afstand bewaren tussen de bezoekers kan meer dan naar verwachting (1.5m) gerespecteerd worden. 1 minpuntje: de mogelijkheid om lokaal een lunch te benutten was er niet. Waarschijnlijk te wijten aan Covid-19?

I was very much impressed by the power of Freddy Tsimba's sculptures. The permanent collections give you a deep insight of various aspects of Central Africa. The park is beautiful ! And above all that, a warm welcome !
