Expérience fantastique: The museum is very accessible and well-arranged. I highly recommend it, especially for children up to 12 years old. The workshops are especially recommended. For only 3,- extra there are all extras that are more than worth the 3,-. We had a fantastic day!

Expérience fantastique: I was pleasantly surprised at how big the museum is. The exhibition alone takes about 2 hours. Then there is the museum park with its circular path and all the huts. Too bad the chopbar was closed. Otherwise it was just great. You learn a lot about Africa and outside through the park you already feel like you are in Africa. Just been great.

Expérience fantastique: Extensive overview of housing forms and cultures in Africa. The cultural values ​​of tribal origin and family tradition. The exhibit inside is diverse and the exhibit of the present of slavery is impressive.

They have quite nice and amazing collection, also miniatur of typical African house from different countries in Africa Quite huge park to walk around, we were there when the weather was quite hot, around 31°C. So we felt the heat just like in Africa

Expérience positive: A small cute museum about Africa and the past slavery. The collection is quite small but interesting. The stories about people with an emigration background is interesting. However, I found that the colonial history of Africa was too much focused on the last 100 years. It showed a map of how Africa was divided in 1914. While at this point the Netherlands was no longer in Africa (Surprise). The outside collection shows a few small villages which are interesting, beautiful and kid friendly. I think the museum has a lot of potential but can be improved. Also it sometimes lacks explanation and there is no English explanation.

Expérience fantastique: The museum has a huge exhibition with many different ways to show the information and a lot of interaction possibilities for the visitors. Beside the four parts inside there is also a whide space on the outside, with the possability to sit down and have a picknick. The museum tries to show not one but many different pictures of Africa.

Expérience positive: The Afrika Museum is a museum about people Located in the wooded hills of Berg en Dal near Nijmegen. It has both indoor and outdoor exhibits, with regularly changing temporary exhibitions and permanent displays of traditional African objects and its large collection of contemporary African art. Objects that reflect the customs and traditions of different African peoples. They tell stories about universal human themes like mourning, celebration, ornamentation, prayer, conflict; stories that inspire visitors to find out more about the huge cultural diversity to be found in the world. Most of the exhibits are in Dutch and German. But there are English audio options for some of the exhibits. Outdoor exhibits are worth visiting with children. It is good to rent a bike from Centraal Station if you are visiting via public transport. If you take a bus still you will have to walk around 2 kms to reach the place.

Expérience fantastique: Amazing experience. I have gained new historical information. Good to see that parents are going to watch with their children, and that young people are also getting this piece of history.

Expérience fantastique: The museum is located in a beautiful setting and has a versatile collection. Outside, children can run around between the recreated villages, and there are fun African games to play. Very impressive is and remains the more original collection of antique African spiritual statues and works of art. But you can also learn a thing or two about contemporary developments (freedom struggle). The continent of Africa is of course far too complex and gigantic to give a complete picture, but I think the museum has been reasonably successful in highlighting some aspects (including their own past and history!). Well worth going to!

Expérience fantastique: Today was the (Surinamese) Keti Koti festifal at the Africa Museum. Every year on Keti Koti the abolition of slavery is commemorated (July 1, 1863 officially, but for many this was only 10 years later in 1873). Keti Koti reflects on the slavery past, but also exuberantly celebrates freedom, equality and solidarity. An important piece of shared history never to be forgotten. Buses full of people had come from far and wide. The parking lot was also full of cars. Traffic was controlled wonderfully by men who knew how to keep things on the right track. Once on site, the fun already met you! Everyone looked their Easter best, in beautiful colorful clothes. It was hot in the summer. Fantastic weather for such a festival. There were many stands with all kinds of delicacies for sale, but also a number where you could buy beautiful African clothing and accessories, works of art, etc. There was also great music played by various Surinamese bands where you automatically started moving along. There were also a number of workshops that you could participate in, even for the little ones! The festival lasted until 8 p.m. All in all, it was a very special happening again, especially after 2 years of absence, so that the celebration of freedom brought an extra dimension to the festival. All things considered, made this a great day. It is very worthwhile to do once or to do again next year of course!

Expérience fantastique: Educational, interactive, fun also for teens: silent disco, past and present, Very interesting, primitive = Latin word, oldest, original, first of all, explanations with the posters. We carry Africa with us - our phones made with African raw materials. Nice that the museum is open on Mondays (school holidays). Thank you

Expérience positive: Nice museum, friendly people. Mix of historic African villages and artefacts with modern identity oriented installations. Kids activities during school holidays, like making Surinam freedom birds, see picture. The outdoor museum is a bit of a weird mix of old and modern urban Africa. This is not really working as one experience. We dearly missed the pygmee village in the forest. Our girls always played such a nice games there. It's all gone. Such a pity. The outdoor games are fun. Coffee a bit old from the thermos, but gift shop, visitors and people all friendly.

Expérience positive: An interesting museum about Africa tucked away in a fairly remote corner of the Netherlands. Worth a visit especially if you have kids since they are a lot of fun child friendly activities integrated into the muse experience. One minor drawback is that most of the exhibits are in Dutch and German. There is an audio-guide in English but it doesn't give a complete overview of everything.

Expérience fantastique: I am IN LOVE with this museum. The exhibition is curated in detail and the vast collection immerses you fully in modern and past African culture. The place where it is located is magnificent, surrounded by nature, with large open spaces with typical architecture and a sculptural path in the green. Suitable for all ages.

Expérience fantastique: A nice place, but quite a lot of terrain was under construction. A route (due to corona) was also somewhat unclear. Beautiful statues outside. Take your time and enjoy There is also a toilet for someone who does not yet know whether he is HE or SHE ...

Expérience fantastique: I didn't know what to expect before going there, but I had a very nice time. It is not just a museum, but a museum with a narrative and a story to tell about Africa and the world. I am really appreciative of this. I was also able to see all the work done by the people working there to organize the collections, the exhibitions, and I was very impressed by the parc with the recreation of different traditional places in Africa. The whole place is really about making connections between Africa traditions and modernity, it is definitely a museum I will recommend.

Expérience fantastique: Interesting location to follow nice workshops. You are there for about half a day. You can park there all day for 2 euros and you can also borrow bicycles after your visit to view the area by bike. Well worth a day trip

Expérience fantastique: Museum that shows the artistic and cultural influence of the African continent in the world. Afro American and afro Caribean culture is also included, demonstrating its scope. Beautiful, abstract art, architecture, music, political ideology, faith, fashion, modern and history, everything is discussed. The entertaining and informative is nicely balanced between the exhibits and African buildings outside. For kids there is lots to discover and learn.

Expérience fantastique: Beautiful museum. With actual "identities" of different African countries. The environment outside the museum is also beautiful for peaceful walks

Expérience fantastique: Easy to reach with ample parking. You can view inside the museum and possibly. for the children to follow a treasure hunt, they have to look for a number of images after which you can carry out an assignment using a magnifying glass, binoculars, etc. Once you have arrived outside you can follow a footpath where you will be taken on a journey along different African houses / villages. Afterwards you can shop in the African kiosk or have a drink / snack in the adjacent lunchroom. Very educational for young and old.

Expérience fantastique: Africa! Very nicely presented and reproduced on a large inside and outside area. Inside you can see from art treasures to tribal rituals, from African eating habits to toys, from ancient tribes and their customs to today's Africa. There is so much to see, discover and learn about the country, the people and animals, life and death. In some rooms there is the possibility to watch the impressive country on smaller films, so that the impression becomes even more intense. The building is wheelchair accessible and the toilets are well signposted and clean. In the outdoor area, which can also be managed with a wheelchair or stroller, you can experience Africa to touch or roam. Whether their huts made of straw and clay or their craftsmanship or their society, life community, here you can see Africa again impressively presented with all the details. Africa is shown to you in a way we have never seen it. Marvel at fun and spacious nature. A relatively inexpensive day trip if you take the time to discover it all. Of course there are also souvenir shops and restaurants on site, as in every park or larger museum. Well worth a trip to Holland, definitely and also very suitable for and with children. Go there ... it's really worth it. In addition, there is also a smaller Tivoli Park z. B. Have fun in Africa! Unfortunately I don't have more pictures available at the moment.

Expérience fantastique: Very rich museum. If you go in winter it's pretty quiet and there are less exhibitions. However, if you like to have a nice quiet look it's awesome. Make sure to check out the outside. Gives you a nice idea about Africa's rich culture.

Adriana Marin Grez 4 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Maybe a bit out of the way on your Netherland trip but worth the visit. Parking is 2 euro, museum for adults 19, chikdren under 12 for 6. Absolutely visit on a sunny day, as you will want to visit the reconstructed african village complexes. I highly recommend the summer months as tgey have a bunch of activities for children (mud brick construction, house painting, cloth dying, drumming, mud bath...
