Musee International du Golfe de Guinee Reviews
Notre pays mérite mieux comme musé. Seul avantage se trouve à l'intérieur du palais des congrès et proche de la place de l'indépendance et du 2 février lieux souvent visités par les touristes more »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
A wealth of material, but mostly 2nd and 3rd rate- organized by a Chinese collector who seems to leave at the rear next to his hotel- a bit odd. more »
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.
