Batoufam heritage Hut: Architecture, Power and Social Cohesion

Home » Destinations » Batoufam heritage Hut: Architecture, Power and Social Cohesion

One of the remarkable particularities of this chiefdom is undoubtedly its open-air configuration, which has architecture as its common thread. It is directly in the heart of this open-air chiefdom that the museum has been installed. Through a free or commented route, in the heart of this labyrinthine palace, the community museum gives to see and understand the rich architecture of this chiefdom and, through it, the history and the socio-political organization of Batoufam. . This heritage hut reveals the genius and the plural know-how of a kingdom which was founded in the 18th century.

In 2022, the chiefdom loaned objects for the exhibition « Sur la Route des Chefferies du Cameroun » .These objects returned to their place at the end of the exhibition.
