guided tour complex histories, associated memories

On this fascinating guided tour, the museum’s unique collections give you and your group an insight into the long history of Central Africa.

Although the building is a reminder of colonisation, the history of Central Africa starts much earlier.
The fossilised tooth of an anthropoid establishes the earliest presence of our ancestors on the African continent, millions of years ago. The continuous expansion of human activity in the region is also abundantly illustrated with the aid of tools, art objects, weapons and other (paleo-) archaeological discoveries. 

Through this impressive collection, an experienced guide introduces you to some of the most powerful Central African kingdoms, and discusses the encounters and subsequent trading relationships between African and European rulers from the 15th century onwards. Central to this is the international slave trade.

Next,  you take a comprehensive look at the colonial period, discovering current social and scientific insights.  

The tour ends with a look at the current Congo, Rwanda and Burundi, and the challenges and possibilities that these states face in the immediate future.   

 

This tour will always include the following galleries:

  • Long History
  • Colonial History
  • The Resource Paradox

Are you bringing more than one class? No problem: several groups can start the tour at the same time.

Can you stay a little longer? Then why not consider the Music on the move or History workshops? 

Or if you’d prefer some fresh air, head for the adjacent park.

During this fascinating tour, the spotlight is on the museum buildings themselves.

An experienced guide takes you around the new iteration of the AfricaMuseum and talks you through the five-year period of renovation, restoration and modernisation.

The architect’s vision is expressed not only through the restored elements but also in a number of clever architectural features that subtly connect the modern reception pavilion with the original museum building.

By the end of this tour, the buildings will have revealed their most intimate secrets, and you can swiftly head for the stunning collections contained within.
