National Museum, Lome

History Museum · Museum
Explore Togo's prehistory and colonial era at National Museum, which strives to preserve the nation's identity and culture. A Chinese merchant and collector currently runs the museum, which pairs relics from the two different time periods. Although modest in size and a bit run-down, the informative collection of paintings, pottery, textiles, and musical instruments remains an important monument to a relatively poorly documented national history. You can ask assistance from guides for more insight into the country's anthropological, ethnographic, and natural aspects. Using our international travel planner, Lome attractions like National Museum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
