DescriptionEasily accessible by public transportation from Brussels, AfricaMuseum tells the story of human and natural history with a collection of artifacts from the colonial era in central Africa. Until March 5, 2023, discover the temporary exhibition 'EUROPA, Oxalá', which shows the work of 21 European artists and intellectuals whose family origins lie in the former colonies in Africa. These artists, born and raised in a post-colonial context, present a reflection on their heritage, their memories, and their identity. 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 contemporary African art.
