Beautiful renovation of the museum and a new spirit which animates it very interesting. We only visited part of it, because it is very large as an exhibition What particularly touched us were the video testimonies of people of different ages who tell what they experienced: rites of passage, various ceremonies, weddings, etc ... It adds a lot of life to the objects that surround the visitors. The more objective look at colonization and what it brought / took away from the Congo also gives an enriched current meaning to the entire exhibition. Nothing is white or black: important to understand the nuances of all lived experience. I bought on the spot and read with interest the book of Lieve Joris 'Mon uncle du Congo' and that allowed me - me who did not never been to Africa-to immerse myself there deeply. Also reviewed the Congo River DVD ...
Beautiful museum. Lot of things to learn about the colonial times, but also about today. Easy to move within the different rooms and very good explanations (and in four languages). It is a pity the restaurant/cafeteria is closed, I would have stayed longer.
I was very much impressed by the power of Freddy Tsimba's sculptures. The permanent collections give you a deep insight of various aspects of Central Africa. The park is beautiful ! And above all that, a warm welcome !
Packed with history and insightful on what it must’ve been like for the Congolese population back then. Brrrr brings scary shivers down the back of my head!! The museum and the park around it are simply beautiful
the museum is a time capsule. it reminds me of my childhood museums and it brings a lot of memories from my happy times in africa
