  • Excellent collection of African art in a setting that allowed easy access tor the pieces. The guide was able to share information in English and the indoor/outdoor setting made for a relaxed milieu...

  • 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.

  • Date of experience: June 2018 It changed its name to the Museum of African Art or something like that. This is a very small, privately-owned museum (by a Chinese anthropology professor). It is a small 2 (overcrowded) rooms that contain a good collection of masks, carvings and other objects from around West Africa, most of them are tagged with the country of origin and some with the date. You have to pay an entry fee, I was asked an extra fee to take photos, there was no sign(s) that said that photography is not allowed and it kind of felt like extortion. It is not great, but there is nothing else (at least based on my search) that you can do in Lomé, so this would be a good place to waste an hour or two during the weekend. Note: This place is not well known, so I had a hard time asking around if any driver can take me there, in the end, I had to use google maps to guide the driver.
  • Upon our visit to Togo 🇹🇬 we decided to visit the museum but the charge was high so we couldn't. So I decided to give you some pictures of the front view. Thank you
