Museum of Civilizations of Ivory Coast – Ivory Coast

A trip to the Museum of Civilizations of Ivory Coast will expose a side of history hidden due to the barrier of language in West Africa. Created in 1942, the museum has masks, animal parts, musical instruments,
ornaments, photographs, slave shackles, carved doors, pottery, textiles and many more that belonged to people of the past. A tour in the museum will not only teach you about how many of the people settled in Ivory Coast, it also takes one through the political and social history of several established names in the country and a glimpse of Ivory Coast’s interaction with other people in ancient Africa.
