Tanji Village Museum

This is The Gambia’s first privately operated museum, and was set up in 1997 by Mr. Abdoulie Bayo, a former curator at the National Museum in Banjul.

It is located 32km from the capital of Banjul, about 2km south of the fishing village, and lies along the Kombo Coastal Road.

The various structures that hold the ethnographic exhibits, such as tribal artifacts, a photo gallery of the vegetation and birds of The Gambia, are inside African style round huts.
