A such the Pavilion was not open for visit at the time of my travel to Liberia but you can still go around outside. The main entrance and the statues were under renovation at that time. More important than the Pavilion and the National Museum which is located just next to it is to spend time walking around the place... More

I like Monrovia, and I like to see some of the buildings with a bit of history, so I enjoyed looking at the Centennial Pavilion. Quite a nice building compared to many others in Monrovia, and it's been newly renovated. It has pictures of all the presidents on the wall.

The staff have done a lot of hard work to keep the hall in top shape. It feels and smells a little like a church, but Liberia is a place of deep faith, so it really fits. There is a eye-grabbing mural of the declaration of independence here, and any national event here keeps the country's history connected.

Monrovia, Liberia's Centennial Pavilion is a centerpiece for modern Liberian History. For decades, all formal government functions were conducted there, ranging from Presidential inaugurations to state funerals to elite weddings. President William V.S. Tubman, Liberia's head of state for 27 years, was buried there. It was the key facility and location for the most important events of the country. Then,... More
