The Museum

The Royal Museum for Central Africa opened its doors for the first time in 1910.

King Leopold II decided to build it because he wanted the Belgians to discover the Congo’s wealth.

The French architect Charles Giraud designed the Museum. The building is like a palace surrounded by the grounds of a delightful estate.

During the course of the renovation work the Museum will be closed to the public until 2017.
