A number of animals live in the zoo portion of the National Museum. All are native to Niger, all in small old-fashioned cages of the Curious George style. Artisans work in an atelier section of the musée, doing leather work, silver, weaving, and there is a shop of people making lamps out of calabashes. There are samples of local housing, tuareg tents, huts, houses made of local bricks. And most interestingly, there are a number of people who live at the musée. Like a village within the zoo. This week, we'll tour the National Musée.
