Might be a very nice Museum but it is closed!

As far as we could acertain this mueum is closed for at least a year so well into 2020. There is no mention of this on the web site which is really poor. We had decided on a visit to Essen in part because of this museum and were very dissapointed to find out it was closed when we got there.

do not miss it

There are some interesting things in Essen to see, but you should not miss this one. I first thought that 8 Euro for 50 m2 was too much - you can see Folkwang museum for free - but at the end, it was the best museum tour I’ve ever had. We heard so many detailed and exciting stories about every exhibit, that we didn’t notice that we were there for over 3 hours. I would do this again. It was like diving into an unknown culture. We were not allowed to take photos but there are some good postcards for 1 Euro each to help us refresh our memory.

Excellent

This is a fairly small museum, but it’s packed with artifacts and you could easily spend a couple of hours there if you want to hear all the stories. Make sure to have someone working there show you around as there’s not much explanation otherwise and you’ll miss out on all the wonderful stories. Be sure to ask about the story of the altar. The museum is absolutely unique in Germany and probably in Europe and it’s not to be missed.

I’m giving the museum four stars instead of five for two reasons. The first is an unfortunate no photo rule. There were so many interesting pieces here and I would have liked to have some record to look back on in the future and remember the stories we heard. The second reason is that I felt the entrance fee of 8 euros per person was a bit steep for a museum that only consists of three small rooms and a closet, especially considering that many much larger museums in Germany cost less.

Book a guided tour with the owner and check the homepage for special occasions

The Museum is small, but it offers a fully equipped Mama Wata altar, a twin-shrine and many more objects. Without a guided tour, you will miss the best. The owner is a good storyteller and he has deep insight into the west African voodoo culture. He speaks English and is happy to share his knowledge. This year he opens a larger museum to show more of his vast collection. Compared to the museum in Straßburg, the Essen Museum was far more interesting.
