Congo River. 4700 Kilometres Bursting with Nature and Culture

In connection with the International Year of Biodiversity, the Museum organized in 2010 an interactive exhibition featuring the great Congo River (27 April 2010 - 9 January 2011).

A spellbinding river over 4,500 kilometres long and up to 30 kilometres wide, flowing silent and calm across plains or roaring furiously through rapids and waterfalls, it’s Central Africa’s main artery, the source of extraordinary biological, geographical and cultural diversity.

The exhibition followed the Congo from source to mouth through equatorial forest, using a multidisciplinary approach based on RMCA collections and research.
