FEATURES
The Guinea exhibit consists of three separate structures surrounded by a moat. The simulated thatched roofing of the smaller circular huts represents the traditional type of buildings in Guinea. In these huts native craftsmen will work on items that may be purchased by the visitors.

There is a restaurant in the main building with a stage in the center for performances by members of the famous ballet troupe of Guinea. The multi-colored woven straw ceiling in this buidling will be similar to the ceiling in the President's new home in Conakry, the nation's capital.
