National Museum of Abidjan

A decent little museum, certainly worth checking out, the National Museum of Abidjan is centrally located in the city's Le Plateau region. The museum has a special focus on Ivorian art, showcasing statues, masks, jewellery, tools, carved doors, tom-toms and musical instruments from every region of the country - with a large proportion of the artefacts on display being carved from gleaming ivory. Please leave a donation on your way out of the museum, to contribute to the upkeep and maintenance of these cultural treasures.

Opening times: Open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 12pm, and 3pm to 6pm

Admission: Free admission, although you are encouraged to leave a donation on your way out
