A very nice gallery of contemporary and antique art primarily from Mali, Cameroon, Ghana, and Nigeria. Some really nice finds from other places such as Congo and Niger as well. Very reasonable prices for such nice stuff. The staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable as well. Must see when you visit Dakar.

Galerie Antenna has a fantastic collection of African art -- mostly from western African countries. The staff is superbly knowledgeable in the objects and I learned a lot about African history of art from him during my visit. Nearly all items are for sale, so you can purchase them if interested.

Near major hotels, I got this gallery by mistake as this located in one of the back streets in Dakar. The exhibition is very interesting and most pieces are from other parts of the African continent. Very well presentable and great art works.

Beautiful gallery! I am glad Sineta included this on the tour. She said there are more items in this gallery than the IFAN museum that I was insisting on seeing. They charge like $10 and the gallery is free!

Great collection. The prices were reasonable and the staff helpful. It is almost a museum. Like many places in Dakar, La Galerie Antenna is hard for drivers to find. However, very much worth the trouble.
