Under the direction of King Leopold, the Belgian Congo returned
fantastic riches to Belgium in the 19th century, yet the people of
that colony paid a terrible price. This museum was founded to
explore the relationship between European colonial powers and the
people they subjugated. Recent exhibits have broadened the museum's
focus to include environmental issues and ethnography in Africa,
Asia and South America. The museum is situated on beautiful grounds
in the Flemish commune of Tervuren, just outside of Brussels.
