We stopped by to visit and were met by a "guide" who took us inside. We had a look around, he told us when it was built and asked for a donation but got upset that we hadn't given enough. More visitors appeared and he followed them with the wooden donations box and refused to take anyone up the Minaret. It was a lovey building but you are only there for 10-15 minutes

My friend and I visited the mosque without any instruction on how to best visit. We entered, enjoyed quietly walking around the main room of the mosque, and after 10 minutes or so were greeted by a nice gentleman that gave us a tour for a fee of approximately 20,000 CFA. So it was a bit more to pay than we expected but he took us all over, explained a bit about the history of the mosque, and fielded are many questions.

Built thanks to Lybian help, this mosque is big and grand, but nothing really special in terms of architecture, history or decor...

There isn't much to visit in Niamey, so might as well check this out, but definitely not one of th must-see mosques in Africa.

If you are going to do something, do it well. As a non-Muslim, I nevertheless found this a most imposing building, with no expense spared. It dominates the city, with grand trees surroundig it. It is a fine place for worship

Time your visit to not interfere with prayer times (you can Google the times). Also avoid Fridays and Muslim holidays. We parked in the big area outside the gate and walked through the gate. We took our time to take some pictures outside and during that time, someone was notified of our presence. He motioned us in from the door. We removed our shoes as customary before entering. Our group had men all wearing pants with t-shirts and women in long skirts, long sleeves, and scarves as head covers. The guide took donations (he expected money from each of us, so be sure to have small bills/change) before explaining some information about the mosque - he spoke only French. The mosque inside was very pretty with a lot of ornate wood doors, stone carving, and tile work. The guide said the decoration was from Morocco. He also showed us the women’s prayer area and then took us to a few other prayer areas behind the women’s area and above the women’s area. Afterwards, he asked for a tip and we had to ask to go up in the minaret. They brought us our shoes for the minaret climb, which was very thoughtful. A man climbed ahead of us to make sure the stair railing was clean as well. Overall, it is a beautiful building with thoughtful and kind staff.

Grand mosque of Niamey is big and beautiful mosque in the center of Niamey, but with very few visitors. Even at the afternoon prayer time no visitor. Mosque need maintenance and cleanup the area around the mosque and big compounds around it.

The beauty of this Mosque can not be adequately described in words. The intricacies of the tile and plaster works throughout the mosque are fabulous and of the highest quality. Friendly and inviting staff to show you around. Wonderful place of prayer for the Muslim faithful.

The Grand Mosque in Niamey is of architectural and religious significance and well worth tourists' visits.
