"Spending time at the Grande Marche is one of the most enjoyable ways to pass the hot hours of a Niamey afternoon. One can find everything there: traditional outfits, beaded jewelry, shoes, pots, school supplies, stereo equipment, bed spreads, sunglasses, mosquito nets - and anything else one may be..." searching for.

National Museum of Niger (Musee National du Niger)
"The Museum is a must-see for any tourist, mostly because there are very few other tourist attractions in Niamey. There are interesting displays about Niger culture, model houses, and sad looking animals in small cages. In the middle of the Museum grounds is an artisan market, which offers good qua..."lity silver, leather, wood, and cloth, and shouldn't be missed when souvenir shopping. The restaurant has been recently redone and is said to have good food.
Other places for souvenir shopping include the shops in Chateau 1, the stands along the road opposite La Cloche, and the Wadata Artisinal Center.
