I wouldn't make a special trip for it, but if you're in Monrovia one day you'll probably be near enough to call in. In a rather haphazard way, it charts the history of Liberia, including recent history. The museum was also a casualty of the war it documents. Apparently, lots was looted during that time.
Although the dividing lines are a bit blurred, broadly, the ground floor covers the history, including the first - tiny - Liberian flag (but there are also lots of masks of the different ethnic groups), upstairs is the ethnographic section (but also a display on the recent war, and a dining table presented by Queen Victoria), and at the top is a gallery of paintings by Liberian artists. This top floor also has something that aspires to being a reading room - but you'd have to bring your own reading material.
The building itself is lovely, and was once apparently the old Supreme Court. .
It wasn't clear if there's an entrance fee, but I was asked to pay a small amount (no receipt) - which I didn't mind because without the 'guide' who accompanied me, I wouldn't have known what I was looking at half the time.
It's on the north side of Broad Street, in between Center Street and Front Street
