Religion and beliefs make up the foundation of all humanity. Many of the original religions in West Africa represent different forms of animism or other nature religions. Many elements in these cults are the same as in the Scandinavian religions before the arrival of Christianity.
The museum of Villa Karo consists of objects that have been collected in West Africa: it’s exhibition focuses on illustrating old beliefs and especially on depicting the different forms of Voodoo that exist in southern Benin, Togo and Nigeria.
Villa Karo also has the pleasure of having a Vodou expert as its managing director, Kwassi Akpladokou. On this page, in the comment section, you can ask him all the questions that have been bugging your mind about Voodoo. Welcome! Bienvenue!
