The Tropenmuseum is involved in various, divergent international projects in many different countries.
Forts in Indonesia
The Tropenmuseum presents an exhibition on some of the most monumental historical buildings in Indonesia: hundreds of forts built between the 16th and 20th centuries along important trade and sea routes. What exactly was the function of these forts and why were they built on the sites where they still stand today? What role do they play in today’s Indonesia?
