Galleries and Museums
The Brazzaville Museum, part of whose collection was looted during a period of violence in the country, is working hard to rehabilitate its collection. Nevertheless, the greatest collection of modern art can be found at the Poto-Poto painting school. There you will find gouaches and pastels of the high quality. Such fine art can also be found at the Dispatches gallery in Brazzaville located in the Plateau Market downtown. The many sculptures and statues around Brazzaville serve as testimony to the Congolese’s’ persistent interest in the use of plastic for art.
In Brazzaville you can also find affordable and quality basketry. Basket weavers are in high demand to make pieces for living rooms, bedrooms, and dinning rooms. The busiest weaving shops can be found near the Bifouiti. Roundabout.
