Welcome to National Museum of Abidjan

National Museum of Abidjan

A decent little museum, certainly worth checking out, the National Museum of Abidjan is centrally located in the city's Le Plateau region. The museum has a special focus on Ivorian art, showcasing statues, masks, jewellery, tools, carved doors, tom-toms and musical instruments from every region of the country - with a large proportion of the artefacts on display being carved from gleaming ivory. Please leave a donation on your way out of the museum, to contribute to the upkeep and maintenance of these cultural treasures.

Information & Facts

Free admission, although you are encouraged to leave a donation on your way out
The official language of Ivory Coast is French but more than 60 native dialects are spoken.

The official currency is the CFA Franc (XOF), divided into 100 centimes. The CFA Franc is linked to the Euro. New notes were issued in 2004 and only those issued by the Bank of West African States ( Banque des États de l'Afrique de l'Ouest) are valid currency. There are a few ATMs in Abidjan but most will accept only Visa cards. It is unwise to use an ATM that is not guarded. Credit cards are accepted in the larger hotels and better restaurants. Most shops require cash. Travellers cheques are accepted in banks, as well as some tourist orientated hotels and restaurants.

Opening Times
Open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 12pm, and 3pm to 6pm
