Description The first part of the exhibit is located in the worksite of Dr. Emil Holub, including several of his personal items, medals, trophies, and gifts from indigenous chiefs. The second part, the largest, is devoted to African nature. This is represented not only by large stuffed mammals, but also small birds, hunting trophies, sea creatures, fossils, and minerals. Also on display is a collection of indigenous musical instruments and ritual costumes. In the third part devoted to ethnography visitors find themselves in a small indigenous village among original inhabitants of Africa. The exhibit is an illustrative display of their way of life and shows visitors the handmade work of the natives.
