Sudan mission as never seen before

If you want to see one of the oldest African collections of objects from the Nilotic tribes that exist in Europe, then you have to visit Ljubljana’s Slovene Ethnographic Museum until the end of October. The exhibition Sudan Mission, 1848-1858 tells the story of Ignacij Knoblehar or Ignatius Knoblecher, a missionary, explorer of the White Nile and collector of African objects. The display is a continuation of the museum’s systematic presentation of its African collections.
