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.
