    Provenance of collections

    The bulk of the museum’s collections dates back to the colonial period. In recent years, and especially since the museum reopened in 2018, questions have been raised regarding the provenance of the ethnographic collections in particular, which were assembled during the colonial era.   
    This circuit stops at several pieces of varied provenance and gives a nuanced presentation of the complexities of acquisition, conservation, appropriation, accessibility, and restitution.
