Several African museums were developed following a growing interest in antiquities that led to the research of local archaeological sites.

In Africa, colonial initiatives to study local culture contributed to the development of national museums, which remain after the independence.

And today, the national museums in Nigeria, Ghana, and Sierra Leone are benefiting from the partnership with the British Museum. We continue our review of African art museums with five major museums of Western Africa.
