This is a small ethnic museum. The entrance fee is 3000 XAF but you will have to pay more if you want to take photos inside the museum. There are some wooden sculptures on the outside. The inside has 2 small floors of exhibits. They primarily are focused upon tribal masks and a few other artifacts. Everything can be seen in about 10 minutes.
I highly recommend taking a guided tour, it's not expensive (3000fcfa instead of 2000), but you hear a lot about the local religions and traditions from a friendly guide who speaks both french and english
