KIT Royal Tropical Institute has launched a website where you can learn more about the colonial past of its monumental building. 

Designed as the seat of the Netherlands Colonial Institute, the building is lavishly decorated with artwork that served to enshrine the institute’s colonial history and mission. In the online tour, fourteen works of art are examined. Visual commentary is provided by graphic artist Brian Elstak. See:
