Where the history of The Gambia comes to life...
I first began my plans for The Gunjur museum building for cultural heritage and environmental preservation, some years before I came to Footsteps as a birding guide. The idea is to create the communities first Cultural Heritage Museum for the benefit of researchers, students, tourists, locals and future generations..
The Natural Culture and History Museum will be the only indigenous natural, life and cultural history museum in Gambia. It is located in the natural environment comprising the natural habitats for the remaining fauna and flora. This is the only museum where nature can be experienced and our guests can see our remaining tree and animal species.
The museum building itself is now built and work is progressing with things such as having display cases made to protect the artefacts. Until those works are finished Lamin's living museum is based at his home and Lamin is offering days trips so that visitors can learn of his work, where it started, where it is today and what is needed to see it open for all in the future.
The living museum trip is available seven days a week during the high season and can be booked directly with Lamin through the contact page or through Footsteps Eco Lodge on 7732060.
