About The Museum
History of DIDI Museum

It was founded in memory of Edith Jibunoh (DIDI), late sister of the founder who died at an early age. The institution was inaugurated by His Royal Highness, Alhaji Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano who is also the Charman of the Board of Trustees.

The inaugural exhibition featured two painters, Kenny Adamson and Adam Ajunam and they exhibited over 75 works in the five-day exhibition. The number of visitors was about 1200. In the words of the then Director-General of the National Commission of Museums and Monuments, Dr Ekpo Eyo, “it was an excellent first attempt of this kind of venture by a private citizen”.
