And too stimulate the interest in Belgium for its Congo Free State, Leopold II organised an exhibition. Congo exhibition in the Colonial Palace in Tervuren was part of this grand event. Furthermore, the enormous success led to the founding of the first Congo Museum in 1898. From the beginning, this institution received a scientific assignment. However, due to the rapid expansion of the collections, a larger building was necessary. So, in 1910 Albert I inaugurated the museum and bestowed the name after the Congolese independence.
