Heritage days: commemorative walk in Tervuren
The Brussels International Exhibition, instigated by King Leopold II, was held near the current AfricaMuseum in 1897. Here, Congolese men and women were put on display in a disgraceful spectacle that has justly been described as a human zoo.
Now, 125 years later, the AfricaMuseum is organising guided tours on this subject. During this tour, you will visit 10 significant locations around the museum.
The tour is a collaboration with Georgine Dibua. Her association Bakushinta, organizes guided walks and commemorative events in Brussels.
