  • There is a good range of art work here, from Senegal and the wider continent. I am surprised by some of the reviews here. There is a higher price for overseas visitors but to me this is good policy...  more »

  • Good collection of African art products across the history. The price is relatively high for non-locals though, and taking this into consideration, I don't think you're missing a lot if you decide not to visit this museum.
  • Awesome experience, great exhibits with knowledgeable guides. Definitely worth the visit
