The Tropenmuseum is housed in one of the most beautiful, original museum buildings in the Netherlands. Every one of the objects tells a human story and makes you curious about the vast cultural diversity that enriches the world. They tell us about universal themes like mourning, celebrating, decorating, praying or fighting. From Africa to West and Southeast Asia, from New Guinea to Latin America, in the Tropenmuseum you discover that besides the differences, we are all the same: human.
