“Excellent African Artefact Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The name of this place is a misnomer. You go to see the African Art collection of a former politician who bequeathed his art to the museum. Very interesting masks and other objects from all over Africa. Small but interesting. They sell the last ticket at 4:30 PM but are happy to let you look around until 5:30 PM.
