Musée Galerie du Bassin du Congo
Founded in 2008 by the Dépêches de Brazzaville (the first press group of Central Africa), the Congo Basin Gallery Museum is filled with creation and expression open to the past and present world. Masks, statues, lances and knives, coins and clothing—all touching testimonies of culture, beliefs and ancestral rites—lie side by side. The gallery features sculptures, drawings and framed paintings of famous Congolese artists such as Marcel Gotène, Rémy mongo Etsion, Bill kouelany, Rhode Bath, Schéba Makoumbou, Eliezer Dinga, Pierre Claver Ngampio, Sylvestre Mangouanza, and Jacque iloki. This gallery strives to rekindle the memory of the elders and their know-how and traditions in the minds of the younger generation.
