TAEC is home to an internationally significant collection of over 400 objects representing over 30 distinct ethnic groups. The collection is comprised of traditional clothing and domestic textiles, jewellery, household items, handicraft tools, baskets, religious and ritual objects and other items. The collection is thoroughly documented, stored and maintained according to international museum standards.

We soon hope to feature artefacts from our collection here on our website. In the meantime, please visit the Virtual Collection of Masterpieces, where a selection of TAEC’s most significant pieces is profiled.
