On entering we happened to disturb the female member of staff sitting at the desk who obviously preferred to continue with painting in a notebook beside the till than serving us. Was all too much trouble for her! She starred at us when we asked how much, it all seemed just too much for her to even respond. We asked... 更多
This place closed on every Sunday. Despite the relatively low entrance fee at €3, I do not recommend the visit. There was only a handful historical items displayed. They provided you with an iPad, that you could click in at different display counters for additional online information and images. A clumsy and unappealing set up.
Visited with my family from Brazil and it was staggering to learn of the number of slaves that passed through Lagos to either stay in Portugal of travel again to Brazil- around 10X the number that went to the USA! Overall it is not a big museum but it is well laid out, has embraced modern tech - they give... 更多
This museum was tiny but I was interested to go because of the history of Lagos at the start of the slave trade so it's hugely culturally significant. Although the museum is small, it is very interactive. You are given a tablet on arrival and if you hold it up to the display cases, you get more information, animations and... 更多
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. We found it an interesting way to spend an hour or... 更多
We had a short (20 minute) visit to this small but interesting museum to the slave trade that was connected to Lagos, Portugal. Upstairs they give you a tablet that connects with the displays and is full of information. Very well organized and informative. No need for a long visit though.
Taking photos outside this historic building may be enough for some, considering the museum exhibits are not extensive. However, you still may want to visit: the entrance fee is very low & it doesn't take long to tour.The building doesn't draw much attention to itself & it can be easy to miss so look for the name printed very simply... 更多
