We have been coming to Lagos for other 30 years and did not realise its part in the slave trade starting as early as 1436. They gave us a tablet to help navigate the exhibits. A nice idea which did not quite work. We came here for €5 with the museum as a joint ticket.
Having lived in Senegal and whilst there often visited the infamous Goree Island, I was very much looking forward to seeing Europe's first slave market during my visit yesterday to Lagos. Well to its credit the Slave Market was easy to find but to my dismay being a Monday it was possible to access the Museum (which, hopefully, contains some... 更多
Visited here with the via verde cultural pass €6 for this, the fort and the museum to be used within a week. We hadn't expected much based on other reviews and whilst it is small when you go upstairs they have ipads to give more detail on the exhibits.

On Friday evening there was a DJ standing on this square. All kinds of people were dancing to his music (also traditional). Realy nice to see in the evening.
Very surprised to find that this historical place had closed for renovations during the height of the tourist season. By the look of things it will not be open for some time. Not very good planning by the authorities. Would have thought the Winter would have been a better time to do this!
