The museum was originally intended to be a colonial museum but after 1960, it started focusing on ethnography and anthropology. The exhibition halls in the museum are dedicated to exotic animals ranging from a tsetse fly to an elephant. Among the other exhibits at the museum, you can also see original geographical maps, the suitcase of Henry Morton Stanley, a Portuguese commemorative column and African art. The museum also has historic artefacts that represent the Belgian colonial past of Africa.
In total the exhibits at the museum include collection of 120,000 ethnographic objects; 10,000,000 animals; 250,000 rock samples; 56,000 wood samples; 20,000 maps; 8,000 musical instruments and over 350 archives.
