About the Museum

The Musee National N'Djamena is the National Museum of Chad that highlights the country’s history. Established in 1962, it presents exhibitions on Chad’s prehistory, protohistory, folk arts, crafts and traditions. Its permanent collection contains objects relate to pebble culture, including material from Amgamma cliff, axes, and arrowheads. Other items on display are related to the Boulala and Babalia people, and items discovered at the Bouta-Kabira sanctuary such as masks, bronze objects and bone tools. It is located in the former town hall near the Place de l’Independence. Many of its artifacts have been lost due to the instability of the country.
