Heritages and Museums

Chad National Museum, officially known as Musée National N’Djamena, is a remarkable place to learn about the historical journey of Chad. You will find some interesting artifacts within the museum as well as exhibitions of various items of Chadian history. All captions are in French but you can easily identify what they represent even if you don’t have a guide. Be sure to go upstairs where you’ll find the skull of the Toumai Man, widely regarded by the Chadians as the world’s earliest human ancestor.

Grand Mosque of N’djamena is an enormous mosque is a dominating feature of N’Djamena’s visual landscape. Islam is a very important part of Chadian culture, and the elaborate center of worship attests to this. Prayer calls and religious teaching can often be heard emanating from the mosque. The market area and the mosque sit directly opposite each other. N’Djamena also hosts a large Christian church west of the Mosque. The building is unmistakable with its gigantic cross out front.

Avenue Charles de Gaulle is one of the main streets and principal commercial avenue of N’Djamena, the capital of Chad, which is named after former French president Charles de Gaulle. It runs in a roughly west-east direction through the city. The western end of the road is the commercial district and the location of many foreign embassies and colonial-era buildings.

The N’djamena Cathedral is the ancient cathedral that is situated between the Avenue Charles de Gaulle and Avenue Felix Eboue. To the east of the cathedral are The Place de la Liberation and the Presidential Palace. The colonial architecture and expansive size is worth seeing.
