The stock of the Museum comprises of elements of the material cultures originating from or inspired by Africa. They include artifacts representing the day-to-day existence, technological processes, thought and belief systems, artistic manifestations and oral tradition of African peoples. Among these are sculptured works, masks, clothing materials, pottery, adornments, musical instruments, traditional games and thematic carpets. All these materials from the African continent were acquired in the 1970s either directly by the Brazilian Ministry of external Affairs or as donations from the various Diplomatic Missions of the respective African countries.
