  • You can see a very important pieces from many centuries before. Needs more people to take care of the areas and keep it in more good situation.  more »
  • very good museum, if you understand French. two floors full of information, history and data, Entry for foreigners: 300 CFA. Few things to see in N'Djamena, so the museum is a must. Recommended.  more »
  • For the traveller who cannot browse Chad Museum offers a panorama of the cultures and history of the country. The collections are rich and some pieces of beauty. Museology is not perfect and a little bit messy but with the means available it is a remarkable work. The room dedicated to Toumaï and paleontological discoveries is very explicit. The guide who accompanied me was knowledgeable and attentive I found clever and relevant it permits to Chadian students join in of "private" visit it has thus demonstrated civility, generosity and allowed me to share with young people eager to learn about their environment and the history of their country.
