Royal Museum for Central Africa

Recommended
Organised by King Leopold II in 1897, the Congo Exhibition presented the fauna, flora, art and culture of the region so successfully that it became a permanent museum, housed in this building with a Louis XVI-style façade constructed by Girault between 1904 and 1910. The sculptures and other ethnographic objects provide an extensive representation of a variety of African cultures, in particular those of Central Africa and West Africa.
