A private open-air museum near the sea, Tanje Village Museum proudly presents the country's natural and ethnographic history. Covering an area of 20,000 sq m (236,800 sq ft), the community-oriented site shelters more than 60 different plant species amid a lush, verdant environment. Displays of handmade crafts, such as instruments, paintings, and blacksmithing products, offer insight into Gambia's culture, family structures, and social hierarchies. Meanwhile, other displays focus on the natural environment of the country, and public workshops let you contribute to the production of traditional wares and art. You can also have a bantaba picnic or visit the local restaurant here.
