  • good enough for Chad conditions. Travelling in the city is not secure for various reasons. Only place to learn about Chad history

  • A small and well-run museum of ethnography, palaeontology and the natural history of Chad. The prime exhibit is the Toumai skull of the earliest clear hominid ancestor of Homo sapiens - 7 million...

  • Nice place, well set up. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave a good story of the history of country and all the items on display. Price to enter for foreigners is 3000 cFa. Posted a copy of the cost below.
  • The Chad National Museum was a truly amazing and eye opening experience. I’ve never been to a place even close to how powerful and Chad it made me feel. During the tour my family and I were in a small group of 100 people where we saw Gigga Chad himself (as shown below). There are thousands of people always in the queue of the as families from around the world are always making pilgrimages to the Museum so I suggest to buy tickets in advance. Overall a great experience and a great place to take the family on a weekend.
