Welcome to Tropenmuseum Junior.

Sabi Suriname | Extraordinary discovery

On the seventh floor below ground in the Suriname depot, a previously unknown world has been discovered behind a cupboard: the World behind the Things. What we know so far is that this world only opens for children. Without children there is no access to this world. Even for the director of the museum. The museum is currently investigating whether it is possible to open this World behind the Things to visitors from October onwards. We will let you know via this website and through our social media channels as soon as we know more.
