History and Culture
First on our list and very dear to the heart of every Nigerian is the Kalakuta Museum. The late Fela Kuti’s residence. The locally made palm wine isn’t the only reason we love this place. There’s also the rich culture that takes you back to a different era in Nigerian political history. Visit this place to experience the life of Fela Anikulapo Kuti in his prime.
Number two is the Badagry Black Heritage Museum. A little nostalgia comes with this tourist spot as it holds a lot of memories of darker times in Nigerian history. But overall, it’s still a wonderful place to visit if you’re ever in the area. Definitely worth its salt.
