The Dapper Museum :

A museum that covers African as well as Caribbean, Afro-American, multiracial European, Latin American and Oceanic Indian communities. Since 1986, this museum has regularly held exhibitions that allow its visitors to discover, for the most part, African art.

Current Exhibition : L'Art d'être un Homme, Africa, Oceania

The Olfert Dapper Foundation – named after the 17th century Dutch humanist, and author of, (without having ever left his own country), an encyclopedia entitled Description de l'Afrique, published in 1668 – was created in 1983 in Amsterdam.

This private organization’s aim is to contribute, by organizing exhibitions and offering research grants, to the knowledge and conservation of Sub-Saharan Africa’s artistic heritage.

Emanating out of the Foundation, the Dapper Museum opened in 1986.
