Inside Africa


INSIDE AFRICA is a national traveling museum exhibit that explores the many facets of Africa – its peoples, its lands, its rich cultural history and its stories – and provides a bridge to contemporary American life.

The 6,000-square-foot exhibit offers a deeper understanding of the world’s second largest continent and its peoples from historical and contemporary perspectives. Through many hands-on activities, multimedia presentations and an exceptional collection of African artifacts, the exhibit demonstrates the enormous diversity of African geography, societies and political systems.

The exhibit, produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in collaboration with the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, will tour for 5 years to 12 cities across the United States.

Based on the success of Evergreen Exhibition’s (formerly BBH) single-exhibit tour of AFRICA: One Continent. Many Worlds,” INSIDE AFRICA takes museum-goers of all cultural backgrounds and ages into the African experience, allowing them to discover firsthand the vitality, richness and significance of African peoples and communities in the context of a journey to selected sites on the African continent.

The exhibit was developed around a permanent display at The Field Museum in Chicago, with consultation by Deborah L. Mack, Ph.D.
