Musee de Bandjoun

The Musee de Bandjoun of African Art offers a unique opportunity to delve into the rich culture and history of the small town of Bandjoun, which has been around for seven centuries. The museum houses a vast collection of historical artifacts that bear testament to the evolution of art, craftsmanship, and local history. Visitors are invited to explore a permanent exhibition divided into six sections, each brimming with countless artifacts from the past.

The displayed pieces include thrones of ancient rulers, statues, paintings, handicrafts, vibrantly colored textiles and embroidery works, furniture, and musical instruments. The museum also provides a fascinating insight into the town's secret society, significant historical events, and the ways of life of the local people.

Bandjoun, also known as La 'Djo in the local language, is a town and commune in the Koung-Khi Department in the West Region of Cameroon. Bandjoun is the capital of the Koung-Khi department, and one of the largest traditional chiefdoms (chefferie) in Bamiléké country. The chief resides in Hialah and is known to have many wives. The inhabitants of Bandjoun speak Ghomala' or Bandjoun, which belongs to the Bamiléké family of languages.

Situated around 10 km south of Bafoussam and approximately 230 km north-east of Douala, Bandjoun is accessible via the N4 road from Bafoussam, which passes through the municipality and then heads south-east to Bayangam. The N5 road branches from the N4 in the municipality and travels south-west to Batié. The Route Bangou also branches from the N4 in the municipality and heads south through the town to Bangou.
