If you like history, this place is worth a look. It won't take long because there's not much to it but it offers some nice views of the area.

Not overly big Fort that commands the entrance into the canal/waterway to the Town & Marina. Small exhibition area which changes infrequently. A good photo op !

You only pay to euros to get in and get the visit the Fort from where ships sailed to "discover" a new world! I liked it!

A fortune on the edge of the old town. €2.00 entrance fee for very little. What could have been a highlight were the weather vanes on the roof. These were all rusted up or broken. Two exhibition spaces had very uninspiring photos in

Just go there, enjoy a wonderful view and take as many pictures as your data is free of space ;)) Good place for families and big groups!

Small but sure is a well built fort. All the historical places in Lagos are generally within walking distance as the " old city walls " contain the old church, city gates same streets.

Not sure what this was all about ,,, the exhibits didn't seem to have any connection. Couldn't find anything explaining the history of the fort itself. Only €2 per adult but we were in and out in about 15 minutes

From the outside we were expecting it to be quite interesting inside, there were a couple of rooms with artwork displays that didn't seem to have any connection to the fort. The views from the top were good.
