The building is constructed with indigenous building materials so also the architecture and construction and not far away from the Kano Emir's Palace. It is a museum full of historical artifacts of Kano dating back several hundreds of years. There are excavated huge pots for production of iron, arrows, bows, swords, spear etc.It is managed by National Museum of Arts...
Some of the rooms showcase the traditional architecture employed in hausa / fulani place buildings.
The designs of the roofs have significant cultural and some also have spiritual meanings.
Not a lot of "stuff" in the museum but the little that is there is worth your time.
