GORÉE HISTORICAL MUSEUM
Petit Futé's opinion on GORÉE HISTORICAL MUSEUM
This museum has been set up in the former Fort d'Estrées built in the mid-19th century, on the northern tip of the island. Twelve rooms and nearly 500 exhibits present the history of Senegal from the Paleolithic to the present day. Simple and well-designed explanatory panels enlighten the visitor about the Paleolithic in the region, the great empires and kingdoms of the Middle Ages, the slave trade, the resistance, Islam and a history closer to us (colonization, decolonization...).
