African Renaissance Monument, Dakar Reviews

  • I absolutely loved the monuments. You can have a broader view of Senegal from the top of the monuments. Staying outside the monument was free when I visited but you have to pay to get inside. Though I did not have the opportunity to get inside the monuments, but I was informed that there is a good restaurant inside and an elevator to get to the top of the monument.

  • Visited during evening. It was very calm place, we didnt pay any entry fee to get up. In the night it is illuminated by big amount of lights, which looks amazing.

  • Amazing views of Dakar. I visited on a Wednesday so it was calm; there were not many people. I absolutely loved the encrypted messages on the outside of the statute from President Abdoulaye Wade. I totally forgot to get inside because I was too obsessed with the peacefulness and the views outside. Beware of the many steps you will have to take to get to the statute.

  • I was the only English speaker in the group so I got a personalized tour from a very knowledgable tour guide. The revolving exhibits were very appropriate within the Renaissance Monument, one of Gandhi and the other of a famous Senegalese Artist - super/amazing. Must see when in Dakar. I appreciated the positive and forward thinking which this Monument represented.

  • I've loved it. Some days, like the days we were there, you should have to queue. But it was fluent and calm. They show you all the musée on bulk for 15 or 20 persons together. They try to satisfy everyone. I may be come back once more again.
