To the north, Lagos Island is home to the National Museum Lagos, displaying cultural artifacts and craftworks. Home to over 20 million people from diverse backgrounds, Lagos indeed is a unique melting pot of culture, fun, art, commerce, industry and innovation. From its bustling nightlife to its ever busy streets, Lagos represents the very promise of the Nigerian dream.

Lagos, a fun-seekers’ delight, treats visitors to amazing places like the Lekki Conservation Centre which has Africa’s longest canopy walk, the Freedom Park; once a colonial-era prison and now a major venue for concerts and public events, Nike Art Gallery, National Arts Theatre, The Third Mainland Bridge, a beautiful skyline, warm beaches and more.

With Badagry just about 65 kilometers away from the metropolis, visitors have the unique opportunity of visiting the Badagry Slave Port, the Heritage Museum (built in 1863) and Nigeria’s first storey building (built in 1845) to get a glimpse of the vestiges of slave trade and colonial history.
