KIT Royal Tropical Institute was founded in 1910 as the ‘Colonial Institute’ to study the tropics and to promote trade and industry in the colonial territories of the Netherlands. It was founded by the ministry of colonies, the city of Amsterdam, the Artis Royal Zoo and prominent businesses active in the Dutch colonies. Since 1926, KIT has been housed in a historic, neo-renaissance building at the edge of the Oosterpark, specially designed by the architect J.J. van Nieukerken and his sons. The building has been designed as a national monument.
