The Museum of African Art is the only museum in the region of South East Europe that is wholly dedicated to the arts and cultures of the African continent.
The permanent display represents the art of traditional societies from West Africa and includes artifacts from Mali, Senegal, Guinea, Burkina Fasso, Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Togo, Cameroon and Congo. The objects are exhibited according to material type and geographic provenance, and they belong to artistic traditions of various ethnic groups: Bamana, Dogon, Kissi, Baga, Marka, Malinka, Bobo, Dan, Gere, Gouro, Senufo, Ashanti, Eve, Baule, Fon, Yoruba, and Bamileke.
Aside from the permanent display, which mainly features the traditional arts of west Africa, the Museum organizes thematic exhibitions as a way of presenting the most important segments of traditional and contemporary African art across the continent andits diaspora.
One of the most popular programs of the Museum is the annual event – Afro Festival, which takes place at the end of June.
