New room at the IMNC in Kinshasa

Inauguration 11 March 2010

On 11 March, the Institut des Musées Nationaux du Congo (IMNC), in Kinshasa, celebrated its 40th anniversary by hosting a preview of its new permanent exhibition room.

Thanks to a partnership with the RMCA (subsidized through the Framework Agreement) the IMNC was thus able to create the first exhibition room on the museum site[l1] , Mount Ngaliema.

 From 14 February to 18 March, Viviane Baeke of the RMCA’s Ethnography Section collaborated on-site with IMNC colleagues to mount this exhibition (object selection, theme and panels).

 The entire IMNC team, led by General Director Joseph Ibongo and Director of Heritage and Technical Services Henry Bundjoko, and our Kinshasa-based representative Chantal Tombu were crucial to its achievement.

 The preview was a success and widely covered by the international press (VRT, RTBF, Reuters, BBC) and Congolese radio and television
