Not open on Sunday. Business hours. Great collection: there were many beautiful relics. We received a private tour in French and English. The guide was kind and very knowledgeable about Cameroonian history and culture. We also met the owner who is local royalty.

This is a small museum but has some very fine exhibits. Hopefully the guide is available to explain the exhibits, because the labels are not very informative. But well worth the entrance fee of 2000 Fr. (April 2016)
