STATISTICS INFORMATION FACTS

The National Museum on Broad/Buchanan Street, Monrovia, housed in a 123-years old building, was the home of the Liberian Legislature, Supreme and Probate Court, and the Treasury. The Museum has historic and ethnographic collections including items formerly belonging to several presidents, photo and map collections and archaeological materials.

Historic Providence Island, a tiny island between downtown Monrovia and the port, at the mouth of the Mesurado River, is spanned by the People's Bridge. It was the first landing site of the Founding Fathers of Liberia on 7 January 1822. Providence Island is now a place of amusement and recreation with a bandstand and amphitheater for traditional African music and dance. The "Museum of Indigenous Art" is located on Providence Island, exhibiting crafts from the region; famous Reed Dolls of Loma, handcraft carvings (sapwood, camwood, ebony and mahogany), stone items & soapstone carvings (fertility symbols from the Kissi and ritual masks from Grebo).
