First its not called this anymore--its called the museum of African Art or something like that. A very interesting hodge-podge of different pieces from all over West Africa. Worth visiting if you are doing a weekend in Lome or have a spare hour or so.

Didn't cost much 3000 CFA, but to go view three small and plain sized rooms, containing very similar items of hanging masks and a few statues, just didn't interest me. History I know, but sorry for me, it was a waste of 10 mins.
