Discover the World behind the Things

Tropenmuseum Junior – hands-on exhbition 

A special discovery has been made in the Tropenmuseum!

On floor minus 7 in the Suriname depot, a hitherto unknown world has been discovered: the World behind the Things. In this world a boat sails and the objects talk. They tell about themselves and where they come from. In this world you arrive at Ons Erf in a miraculous way. There you will be musically welcomed by the Suriname team. From there you will leave for Busi Kondre, Toko Ons Belang, Studio Dansi and Fesa Strati. In all these places you get to work in a proberi where you cook, dance, make music, engrave or make a festive procession. In the process you will discover how Suriname is connected to the Netherlands and the world. Everything and everyone comes together in a festive conclusion.
