Timbuktu Things to Do: 31 reviews and 110 photos
Timbuktu is well known for having one of the biggest collection of arabic manuscripts. Most are private collections kept in libraries in private houses, but some are open to the public and can be visited.
Most are religious, but there are many scientific and literary manuscripts as well. Some are being digitalized nowadays.
They will all soon be gathered in a big Timbuktu Library to be built in Sankoré.
