The National Museum is in downtown Niamey, and is hard to miss: the buildings are all painted a brilliant blue and white. There are exhibits on Nigerien history and culture, as well as a small zoo. There is also an artisan area where you can watch people work on traditional crafts and buy their products.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
