The Great Surinam Exhibition
The Great Surinam Exhibition is already a record breaker. Over 40,000 visitors came to see this exhibition in its first month. This is an in-depth story of the former Dutch colony. Visitors can see it in all its glory. All through the years, the Dutch royals have visited Surinam. Crown Princess Beatrix attended Surinam’s independence ceremony in the mid 70’s. In history terms, The Great Surinam Exhibition gives great insights into this country. It covers its settlements, the colonial period with the plantations and slave trade, to the independent republic it is today. A rich tapestry of the country is on display.
