I had the chance to visit the Arch 22 which was build to commemorate the 1994 revolution. The Arch houses various Gambian artifacts, and beautiful view of the capital.There is also a restaurant where you can eat and relax for the day.

Just an arch and you can take pictures. There were some seatings to the side across the judicial hall. Seriously, nothing exciting. If you are traveling, make sure to take your passport. There were several checkpoints and the police give you a hard time without...More

My guess is that they built this place for "once a year" parades. It look very communistic. But there is a nice small museum in the arch (entrance fee 50D = 1 Euro), you get a good view over Banjul from the top floor balcony....More

Very good and interesting place to visit, free of charge by the way and who minds giving a tip for the worker who sits by the door at the end of your visit !!

Visited the arch, was OK lovely view stairs were quite dark and damp as a cleaner was washing them. Not somewhere you would spend a lot of time doing as not a lot at the top just for the view .
