The Museo Africano Mundo Negro is one of the lesser-known museums in Madrid. A visit here will be like a quick trip through the history of African tribal culture. The museum is located inside the offices of the Combonian Missionaries of Madrid. The building is dedicated to the missionary work of Saint Daniele Comboni during his 8 trips to Africa between 1854 and 1880. It is said that his life’s mission was to help Africa survive through this newfound religion – which gave birth to the expression “Save Africa through Africa“. During his time there, he collected many works of art and rare and valuable artifacts that give us a special look into the lives of the tribes.

These items and many more now make up the Museo Africano Mundo in Madrid. The museum displays a collection of every day objects, costumes, war artifacts and art pieces that depict the practices of everyday life in various African countries as well more specific historical artifacts meant for religious or spiritual ceremonies used by Comboni and his missionaries. The museum offers both permanent and temporary exhibitions, university visits, personal tours, and group visits!

The museum is located at Calle de Arturo Soria, 101 (Metro Arturo Soria) and offers FREE guided tours for individuals on Sundays starting at 11:30, and also offers group tours throughout the week!

Reminder: Opening hours and admission fees are subject to change, so please always check the official webpage before going.
