Tervuren: AfricaMuseum Entry Ticket

1. Tervuren: AfricaMuseum Entry Ticket

Easily 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.

Beautiful renovation of the museum and a new spirit which animates it very interesting. We only visited part of it, because it is very large as an exhibition What particularly touched us were the video testimonies of people of different ages who tell what they experienced: rites of passage, various ceremonies, weddings, etc ... It adds a lot of life to the objects that surround the visitors. The more objective look at colonization and what it brought / took away from the Congo also gives an enriched current meaning to the entire exhibition. Nothing is white or black: important to understand the nuances of all lived experience. I bought on the spot and read with interest the book of Lieve Joris 'Mon uncle du Congo' and that allowed me - me who did not never been to Africa-to immerse myself there deeply. Also reviewed the Congo River DVD ...

Can only be recommended. A beautiful complex that invites you to stay longer. An experience for children. You can bring food with you with a clear conscience. The entire facility is handicapped accessible. Wheelchairs were available free of charge when we visited.

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 !

Packed with history and insightful on what it must’ve been like for the Congolese population back then. Brrrr brings scary shivers down the back of my head!! The museum and the park around it are simply beautiful

the museum is a time capsule. it reminds me of my childhood museums and it brings a lot of memories from my happy times in africa
