  • Barely a national museum, more a small showcase for Brazza with a few display boards about him. The mausoleum downstairs was off-limits on my visit. Worth 10 minutes if you are in the area.  more »
  • i recommend trying these places. Musée National tells most about the colonial era with de Brazza's outstanding statue. In the same area you'ill find banks and shops among which Casino tops the list...  more »

  • Located right in the centre of the world, this place offers all the freshness, vibes, and aroma to all of those hungry eyes, and burning passion, who are down to earth, and want eternal happiness in their life. When the sweet Summer Breeze twirls through the silky, smooth, sparkly skin, and generates a whizzy whirlpool, when hungry eyes start to shine, and the heads lean towards a pure bliss whilst chasing the aroma.
  • Perhaps one of the best museums of national, cultural and tribal history in the continent. The way the exposition is organized is superb. However the amount of trash and chaos in the gardens are a pity for the beauty of the building the cultural richness it houses.
