For the first time, I saw a country where the National Museum and the Government Cultural Agency were put together. Probably only the cost of economic backwardness is like this. The collections in the museum are hard to impress, and there are few signs in English.
1. The museum is located near Kivukoni in the city center, very close to the BRT bus station;
2. This museum looks not small, but there are not many exhibition halls that are really open to the public, and there are not many exhibits available;
3. In the exhibition hall, there are mentions of ancient human fossils discovered in Tanzania, the introduction of Arab art, the Maritime Silk Road, the ivory trade, some marine fossils, and even an outdoor exhibition hall for anti-terrorism;
4. But I think the more special content should be the rock art exhibition of ancient humans in Africa. Although they are all exhibited in the form of pictures, rock art that integrates all of Africa is rare;
5. The other is the creative heritage of George Lilanga, a modern and contemporary African artist, on civil architecture, lying quietly in the backyard of the museum;
6. The ticket price for foreign visitors to the museum is 6,500 shillings, which is approximately ￥19.
The local woodcarvings, various ancient wooden decorations, primitive tools, and shields, although not as long as China's history, but by looking at their displays, it also shows that Tanzania is also a country with a historical heritage.
The National Museum in Dar es Salaam has collections of ethnic history, archaeological relics and historical materials, including very distinctive pictures of Zheng He’s voyages to the West, and Ming Dynasty ceramics.
The National Museum shows us the history of Tanzania’s colonial and modern eras. The introduction is very vivid and contains various precious cultural relics.
