A new permanent exhibition of African culture is now on display at Warsaw's Ethnographic Museum at 1 Kredytowa St.

The exhibition primarily focuses on traditional chores and illustrates many of the cultural features specific to particular communities. Mining, hunting and gathering, fishing, herding and farming are all depicted.

Another part of the exposition houses an art gallery with masks and sculptures from different parts of the continent. Many of these have not previously been shown to the public. There is a collection of Mapiko head masks from Mozambique while a display from the Democratic Republic of Congo features a queen's regalia complete with a mask.
