1: A museum where you can wear the masks...

4: Even though it looks like you'd wear it on your face, you wear this type of mask on the top of your head.

5: This type of mask is also worn on the top of your head. It comes from Mali and is worn in a dance that is meant to ask the Gods for rain.

6: ...or even draw the masks...

10: ...we had the opportunity to see instruments...

12: ...and play them too!

14: The are some handicrafts that we saw while we were there...

15: These items are made from clay...

16: In Mali, they do not believe that anything that is usable should be thrown away...so they make toys and other objects out of things we would throw away.

18: These vases are made out of telephone wire.

20: They also had beautiful jewelry.
