  • The museum is small and is accessed with a small amount. In three not-so-spacious rooms are piled up precious artefacts of African art, some of which certainly date back several centuries. It is difficult to extricate oneanotherthrough among them and really understand their value and provenance. Masks of all kinds, drums and objects of all kinds are collected there by a now-disappeared patron. But although of small structural dimensions it has all the charm of African art of past centuries. Visiting it is certainly useful to breathe the customs of peoples who have written important pages of African history and culture.

  • Our country deserves better as a musé. Only advantage is inside the Convention Center and close to the independence square and 2 February places often visited by tourists

  • The place has lots of African historical items and tour guide had a good amount of knowledge regarding them. You're not allowed to take pictures inside the main rooms but you could take pictures outside with a few items. A ticket was sold at 3000cfa for tourists Inside the rooms were hot and the AC wasn't functional and the swimming pool is not open to tourists. I believe with good maintenance the place could be better. Above all, I enjoyed being there
  • It's a nice place, although I didn't get go into the main building to see the artworks, but I did admire the ones placed outside.
