A few masks, a few stories, nice building. We came with natural hunger to learn about the various tribes in the country, and met a small, rundown, neglected set of masks and a bit more. So disappointing ,

We walked in and found an excellent guide that took us around the museum. Fascinating collection and great overview of Benin, the history and culture. Definitely the best musuem in Porto Novo and on my top 5 for Benin.

This is a good idea and when I bring people on a trip with Anago Osho Adventures, the first thing I do is to make the tourists learn about the different culture and way of life of the environment people. The museum is rich with information but the management need to promote the place more for everyone to benefit from the rare collections.

This museum is simple but provides an interesting history of Benin. Our guide spoke English and was helpful, but there was another person who walked around with us to turn the lights on and off which seemed unnecessary. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area as it's a small space but provides a good amount of history.
