Located in the city where the famed caliphate was sited many years ago, the museum tells the history and features many historic relics from the Sokoto Caliphate.
This is a very safe location.
What To Bring
Before heading to Sokoto Museum, here are some helpful things to take along with you:
Camera to capture the sights and take selfies with
Sun shades and a hat
The museum is dedicated to the Islamic scholar and founder of the Sokoto Caliphate Usman Dan Fodio. It tells the story of the caliphate from its inception, its rise and expansion, its dealings with the British colonists and its sudden fall.
You will see relics and even personal effects of Usman Dan Fodio such as his maps, scriptures, copies of his Quran and his thrones. It is a very rich history and the museum brings to life how it was to live in those times. However, the museum is not much in terms of aesthetics.
