During this workshop you and your group will analyze important milestones of the Belgian colonization in Congo.

An interactive introduction demonstrates that colonization is only part of a long history of Africa. It also discusses the close links between the AfricaMuseum and the Belgian colonization in Central Africa.

In the gallery Colonial History of the museum, students then start a group search for elements related to colonial themes that have been developed in various comic books. Later, they meet again to bring the results of this search together into a whole.

Finally, in a dedicated workshop space, the group listens to testimonials and views of the colonial period, which offers  the spark for initiating a debate that aims to bridges between the past and the present.

 

This tour will always include the following galleries:

  • Long History
  • Colonial History and Independance

Are you bringing more than one class? Or can you stay a little longer? Then why not consider the guided tour history, the general guided tour or the guided tour resources?

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

Music workshop for teenagers
Workshop Music on the move

In this lively workshop you and your group will discover what the musical traditions of Central Africa have in common with contemporary musical styles such as jazz, hip-hop, blues, salsa and samba.

A professional musician shows how the centuries-long slave trade set in motion a true musical diaspora that can still be heard in every one of these unique styles today.

In the museum’s galleries, you will then encounter more musical heritage of Central Africa still, including the thumb piano, the bow harp and the slit drum, as well as swinging rumba dancers, drum orchestras and much, much more.

Back in our miniature concert hall, you will join a professional musician for an amazing jam session!  

 

This tour will always include the following galleries:

  • Rituals and Ceremonies
  • Languages and Music

Workshop for kids
Workshop Growing up

This creative workshop focuses on the stories, proverbs and objects that help children to grow up in Central Africa.

First, the guide tells you and your group about the young musician Junior, little Mofia and the student Nelly, who gain a lot of knowledge, practical wisdom and skills from their friends, families and teachers. 

Next, you head into the museum’s rooms yourself to look for historical and contemporary objects with a message.

These serve as a source of inspiration for crafting a genuine ‘proverb cord’ in our well-equipped workshop space. Afterwards you can take the proverb cord back to your school!  

 

This tour will always include the following galleries:

  • Rituals and Ceremonies
  • Languages and Music
