  • Lovely home, fascinating history. Senghor moved into this 1970s home upon leaving the presidency of Senegal. The tour guide worked as a member of Senghor's security team during and after Senghor's presidency, traveling the world with him. The guide does not speak English, but if you can understand French you will learn a wealth of fascinating details about the President and his family's life after leaving office. The house itself is breathtakingly beautiful, with tapestries and artwork from around the world. The entry fee is about 3000 CFA. This museum is well worth a visit!
  • Well maintained. And knowledgeable tour guide
