We would like to introduce ourselves!

The Tropenmuseum, together with the Afrika Museum and Museum Volkenkunde have been part of the Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen (NMVW, national museum of world cultures) since 2014. The Wereldmuseum in Rotterdam became a partner of the NMVW in May 2017 and shares both the collection and mission of the NMVW.
