A collection unlike any other in the world
Private museum, Arbogast collection
The one-of-a-kind Château Vodou houses the largest private collection of West-African voodoo objects in the world.
All the objects presented have been used in religious practices: ancestor worship, medicine, divination, witchcraft and many ceremonies associated with the key stages of life.
Thanks to an outstanding exhibition design, the public discovers a little-known culture and a philosophy of life that is still widespread today.
The collection, from Ghana, Benin, Togo and Nigeria, reveals its secrets in an exceptional setting: a water tower from 1878.
Audio guides are available in French, German and English.
Guided tours for groups (in French, German or English) are possible every day, by reservation (over 8 people).
