The site displays the sometimes-painful history of the country and its people. See the hidden history of secret societies and the costumes people wore at the entrance of the local treasure trove; head deeper into the museum to see the timeline of slavery.

見ごたえあり。記憶する限り入場料は50000レオン程度だった。シエラレオネに住む民族の伝統衣装、マスク、調度品、楽器などの展示。更に二階は現在世界が抱える諸問題を扱った展示があり。ガイドと共に見学します。ガイドの英語は速いので、英語に自信がなければゆっくり話すように伝えること。写真撮影不可です。 more »It's impressive. As far as I can remember, the admission fee was about 50,000 leons. Traditional costumes, masks, furnishings and musical instruments of the people living in Sierra Leone are exhibited. Furthermore, the second floor has an exhibition that deals with the problems facing the world today. You will visit with a guide. The guide's English is fast, so if you don't have confidence in your English, tell them to speak slowly. Photography is not allowed.
It's small but compete it shows the culture and origins.
