  • The Sierra Leone Peace Museum is a quite new museum and a great experience over my stay in the country. It opened after the 10-year conflict in SL and is dedicated to preserving the history of the conflict and promoting peace. Paintings, documentation reflect the situation over the decade conflict which end up to the loss of life of many people. Inside the museum Special Court of Sierra Leone is located. Very interesting to see the building although entrance was not allowed. The guide we had was very nice, analytical and explained the exhibition very well. There was no entrance ticket when we visited, but we just provided a tip to the guide at the end. Highly recommended!
  • Our guide was very informative and professional. The exhibits we're very interesting. Can't wait to see the memorial garden once complete.
