Museum of the Sea

Another worthwhile visit on Gorée Island.

This city is inextricably linked to the sea, especially its iconic fishing industry (as you can easily tell by visiting anywhere along its shores and port areas). That's why you'll want to make time during your visit to the island of Gorée for this modest museum in a humble 19th-century house, easy to find on this small island. The displays here aim to educate both about Dakar's maritime and fishing traditions and about the marine environment itself, as well as the importance of marine conservation, through documentation in the form of photos, documentaries, books, and more.
