History of National Museum of Unity, Enugu

This was established in 1972in a bid to unify Nigeria after the Nigerian civil war. It is notable as the only thriving museum in the country dedicated to the ‘No Victor, No Vanquished’ slogan of 1970 designed to heal the then self-inflicted festering wounds of the Nigerian Civil War.

Believed that exhibiting the heterogeneous culture of Nigeria will encourage understanding, love and peaceful co-existence among the various groups, thereby bringing about unity in diversity, this museum houses a host of invaluable cultural relics from different tribes in Nigeria that cannot fail to interest anyone with an eye for details and cultural awareness.
