African Fashion in Amsterdam Tropen Museum

What to do on a cloudy day in Amsterdam? Pay a visit to the Tropen Museum on the Linnaeusstraat 2,  Amsterdam!

First of all, love this big building made of Dutch bricks! It’s enormous space inside is very impressive. You don’t expect this kind of space in the city centre of Amsterdam.

There are many beautiful cultural collected items from around the world to see. This time of period there are exhibitions on slavery, racism, facinating cultural body decoration around the world. In addition the beautiful exhibition “Fashion cities Africa”. Great to wander around and get inspiration from the colourful collection on this cloudy day.

An impression of some of the colourful African fashion items are here for you to view in this blog.
