Gambia National Museum

The National Museum of Gambia contains a vast collection of artifacts dating back to various points in the nation's past - from prehistoric and pre-colonial times to the most recent era. Items on display range from folk culture pieces to historic documents and maps of the region.

Do & See

The small, gritty port town of Banjul rarely figures as the final destination on visitor itineraries. If a few hours is all you have, explore the Royal Albert Market – the town's busiest commercial grounds – and shop around Ecowas and Liberation Avenues. If time permits, pay a visit to Banjul's most known landmark (Arch 22) – sweeping views unfold from its top floor. For further pursuits, look to nearby settlements, abundant natural parks and the beaches of Gambia's coastline.
