Tanji Village Museum

The fascinating Tanji Village Museum can be found just south of the village of Tanji. The museum give a valuable insight into the traditional Gambian village life in a traditional Mandinka compound consisting of a number of roundhouses each containing traditional furniture and artefacts. There are displays of traditional foods and musical instruments, if you are lucky one of the resident artists will show you how they are played.

Outside the compound is a fascinating nature trail rich with flora and fauna and local craftsmen displaying their weaving, metal work and carving.
