Visitors to Banjul might want to visit the
Gambia National Museum, which highlights the contributions of this country to the whole of Africa, as well as contributions it has made to the world. The museum's mission is also to educate people as to the history of Banjul and of Gambia as well.
The museum, which is located on Independence Drive in the center of town, features a look at a myriad of Gambian contributions, from art to religion to sports and technology. Through exhibits and various programs, the museum seeks to educate visitors and also helps to provide programs to the schools in Banjul and the whole of Gambia.
The museum is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Another must-see attraction is the Katchikally Crocodile Pool, which is in Bakau, just down the coast from Banjul. Here, you can see crocodiles in their natural habitats, and perhaps even get the chance to stroke a docile one. These crocodiles are allegedly accustomed to people and don’t strike out at humans, but it’s still best to keep your safe distance!
