IFAN Museum of African Arts

The richness of Senegal's tribal heritage.

The white building behind the palms across from the central fountain and the National Assembly Building at Soweto Square puts you in touch with the more tribal face of West African culture. The permanent collection here holds some 300 objects, the most striking and characteristic of which are the tribal masks from all parts of this corner of the continent. There's much more besides, from drums to figures and other rutual and artistic objects. Temporary exhbitions regularly supplement these displays, and all of it will leave you with striking and memorable images of this country's cultural heritage.
