There are also a few small islands throughout the Gambia River, such as MacCarthy Island as well as Kunta Kinteh Island, which is named after the slave who was brought to America and who was the basis for the book and miniseries "Roots."
The Kachikally Museum and Crocodile Pool is one of the most popular attractions in Banjul. It is home to nearly 80 fully grown crocodiles as well as small crocodiles from the Nile River. The museum hosts historic artifacts that showcase the city's history of music and culture. In 1966, the Arch 22 was built to commemorate the coup d etat that overthrew the government.
