  • Pity this is the only national museum in Libreville is it is very poorly maintained. There are no cards to buy but on the other hand we can not make pictures of fact we remain only our memories!

  • Next to the Embassy of France, this museum is regularly renewed. I particularly appreciated the Pygmy exhibition

  • I highly recommend taking a guided tour, it's not expensive (3000fcfa instead of 2000), but you hear a lot about the local religions and traditions from a friendly guide who speaks both french and english
  • Small Museum showing some masks and traditional Instruments. For 2000 CFA
