Owner description: Founded in part by a Nigerian cultural commission, the Black Heritage Museum preserves artifacts and records from the slave route that once ran through Badagry.

The museum should be maintained in a much better way and clear lack of funds and investments shows. But that apart, the place should be a must visit for anyone interested in knowing/understanding some bits of history of Nigeria and Africa at large. The guides are very informative and friendly as well. Government can make this a money spinner with just minor up keep and investments, and anyway, this painful part of the nations history should be preserved for ages to come. Point to note: Good to carry your passport as the place is very close to Benin border and immigration officials might hassle you for a quick buck as they did with us.

Very interesting day spent there! you learn a lot about the history of slavery, but also the history of Nigeria. Please plan a lot of time when you go there, so you also have a chance to boat to the point of no return.
The guide in the museum was very knowledgeable and helpful and we learnt a lot.
thanks and highly recommended!

This is a small but interesting museum. Although it could be better curated, I came away with a greater understanding of Nigerian culture, history and perspective of the slave trade.
