    A ticket is 500 Congolese dollars. It is recommended that you bring small change. There may be very few visitors on weekdays and large bills are not easy to find. We need to support the continued operation of this place. It is a place worth visiting.

    (Translated by Google) A place filled with history we breathe Africa and its culture. Guides are connoisseurs of their work. They explain the story as if they were there. I was visiting with a group of children they were very happy and attentive to the stories. (Original) Un endroit rempli d'histoire on respire l'Afrique et sa culture. Les guides sont des connaisseurs de leur travail. Ils expliquent l'histoire comme s'ils y étaient. J'y étais en visite avec un groupe d'enfants ils étaient très contents et attentifs aux récits.

    Pointe-Noire train station is a Congolese railway station on the Pointe-Noire-Brazzaville line. With the train station of Brazzaville, it is one of the two terminus of this line at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, in the department of Pointe-Noire. Located at an height of 14 m, Pointe-Noire station is situated at the kilometric point (PK) 0 of the Congo-Ocean railway line linking Pointe-Noire, the economic capital to Brazzaville, the political capital. This line is 515 km long. The station is located at the completion of the Avenue Charles de Gaulle, the main artery of the city. This remarkable building is a landmark and a central point in the city. The railway line in the city centre marks a clear separation between downtown activity and "la côte sauvage " (the Wild Coast beach), which remains a resort for the pontengrins. On September 26, 1921, the Governor General of French Equatorial Africa, Victor Augagneur, created the electoral district of the Congo-Ocean Railway (CFCO), with Loudima as its Chief location. Thus, it is the decision to build a deep-water harbor that pushes colonial administrators to abandon the historic city of Loango for the benefit of Pointe Noire. The latter is therefore chosen to be the terminus of the CFCO. While in 1921, the first picks were given for the construction of the CFCO on the Brazzaville side, the location of the oceanic terminus of the line is not yet defined. The design of the building would be 1931 and the track was completely completed only in 1934. The set "descriptive quotation, pre-award, price list, estimate, drawings " was performed in 1933, according to the national overseas archives (ANOM). At its official inauguration on July 10, 1934, the passenger station was not completed. The temporary station (freight station) located closer to the future port, were still be used temporarily for the travelers. Source: Wikipedia El-Jean

    Magnificent works on the culture of Pointe-Noire until today, as well as an exceptional painting exhibition. Absolutely worth visiting, especially as the team is very friendly.

    The museum houses nice collection of masks but doesn't give a lot of information. You can also observe modern paintings and a set of historical photos of Pointe Noire dated back to 1920s. It won't take you a lot of time to visit the museum. It also has suvenire cups and t-shirts.

    Serious I don't know anything about arts and culture, in fact it has never fascinated me, but I think it's because I don't know anything about it. How am I going to understand what others value?

    Cercle Africain Museum houses traditional mask predominately and also old pictures of parts of of the Country at various stages of development, with particular emphasis on the oil and gas industry. There is a gallery of contemporary art too. Its quite a short affair to go through it, hoping it gets enlarged in the future and more historical artifacts get included. The Museum is close to the police station and the city's biggest market.

    It's a small museum, well done exhibits. There is a collection of masks and sculptures, another collection about the history of Pointe Noire, and an art gallery in the back. Costs 500 CFA to enter. We spent about an hour there.

    (Translated by Google) This station is worth a visit. A vestige of the country's colonial past, at a time when the French were trying to develop their colonies by installing traffic routes including the railway, this station was built with architecture directly imported from Normandy! (Original) Cette gare vaut le détour. Vestige du passé colonial du pays, à une époque où les Français tentaient de développer leur colonies en y installant des voies de circulation parmi lesquelles le chemin de fer, cette gare a été construite avec une architecture directement importée de Normandie !
