a must see to the completely renovated museum. The park around it is also fantastic, there is a refection pool to the south of the main building, and it was a calm day, got a great picture of the museum in the reflection pool.

A majestic building from the King Leopold II era where a large number of items from the Congo adventure are on display. A beautiful parc, magnificent building and very satisfying expo.
