National Museum, Lagos

Established in 1957, National Museum Lagos has great collections in archaeology, ethnography and traditional art.

Located in Onikan, Lagos, National Museum displays contemporary arts and historical monuments.

The main attractions at the museum are the galleries dedicated to brasses from Benin City, Nok Terracottas etc.

Another gallery dedicated to traditional symbols of power contains carved ivory and a royal host of crowns.

The museum houses the bullet-riddled car in which the country’s former Head of State – late General Murtala Mohammed – was assassinated in 1976.

This museum also operates a nonprofit crafts centre, which stocks a good range of batik cloth, woodcarvings and textiles at fixed prices.

There’s a fine range of intricately decorated calabashes from across Nigeria. The National Museum Lagos has a small crafts village with woodcarvings and other handicrafts for sale at fixed prices; you might also see a demonstration of adire – cloth-making from Abeokuta.

It opens daily (except Sundays) from 9am to 5pm.
