“It is more of an academic centre where you could study the origin of Igbo due to the display of relevant paraphernalia of ancient kings of Nri kingdom.
“This also informs how Ndigbo are contained with their democratic communal leadership and war tools in ancient days with over 5,000 artefacts.” –
General Overseer of Liberation Temple of Absolute God, Dr Ramas Asuzu
The idea of the Odinani Museum was conceived by an anthropologist, late Prof. Angulu Onwuejiogwu and British anthropologist Thomas Shaw over 70 years ago.
The museum was renovated by a philanthropist, Engineer Charles Tabansi after an unfortunate period of collapse (Generous Equianoism).
Igbos in the US and other countries, please, whenever you visit Igbo Land, take a trip down to this site. It is at Nri, Anambra State. It will give you a great experience to take back.
Promote it to your friends back home and on social media to attract tourism to Igbo Land.
I call on the administrators of the museum to have replicas of artifacts on hand to sell to visitors as a souvenir.
This museum needs a website to promote it. Philanthropists should liaise with the management to sponsor one.
You can post your experiences in the comments any time you visit the museum. Contact us if you want photos of the trip published for other members of the Igbo Defender community to see.
