  • A place to visit to know a part of the history of Cameroon. Stroll through the residence of the first President of the Republic of Cameroon.

  • Cool place. Entry is 300FCFA on weekends. There's a lot of food (restaurants), an amusement park and a lot of music (noise). I say it's noise because you have many different stands playing different songs all at the same time. Also I think I saw a video game shed with a 50" TV.
  • Its the former presidency which was transformed into a museum. It has different Cameroonian artifacts with very interesting history about each of them. You can also learn alot about Cameroon culture through a visit at the museum.
