Only 15 km from the centre of Brussels, the Africa Museum is located in a unique setting. The extraordinary diversity of the artwork collection and the historical heritage listed building, set in magnificent French style gardens, are nothing short of impressive.
Having recently undergone a substantial renovation, the museum is the ideal venue to absorb Africa's rich history as well as its art, its music, its rituals...
The delicate topics of the colonial history, sustainable development and biodiversity, have been given plenty of coverage. An important new feature since the refurbishment is the inclusion of contemporary art.
A fresh addition to temporary exhibitions is congolese artist Freddy Tsimba's ‘Mabele eleki lola! The earth, brighter than paradise’, where his artworks cohabit with chosen pieces from the permanent collection, paying homage to the resilience of the people of Congo.
