Visit to Gidan Makama Museum Kano state, Nigeria

Gidan Makama Museum which is also known as Kano Museum is a museum in Kano, Nigeria. I enjoyed visiting this place, we weren't allowed to take photos in specific places. There are different artworks from centuries. I also learnt about how the British people invaded the north. The building served as the temporary palace of Kano before the current palace Gidan Rumfa was constructed in the 15th century.

The museum has a significant collection of arts, crafts and items of historic interest related to the Kano area. Located in a 15th-century historical building, which is recognised as a National Monument by the Government of Nigeria. The museum is divided into 11 galleries, each with their own centre of focus. Galleries include the Zaure or the main entrance hall with displays of traditional materials, city walls and maps of Kano, the history of statehood, Kano in the 19th century, the Civil War, economy, industry and music.



Entrance fee: 100 naira
No photos allowed inside the museum.

  7. I love museums that give the history of an area. I've been to some towns that just look like nothing and then I've wandered through their museums (and I've seen so many beautiful small museums just loaded with history). I've never been in one established in the early 15th century, though! Maybe you can paint us a verbal picture of some of the neatest things you saw inside? The entrance is intriguing and the outside areas are beautiful. And you guys look so cute in the pictures!
