This was one of the most enlightening adventures I have ever been on. There is a sadness that dwells in this place but also a reminder of how far we have come. I am honored to have been in such a historical place to hear the stories of my ancestors and stand where they once stood.

A long way to go for so little when it is such a fascinating part of the country's history. The museum is tiny and only a handful of artefacts

It's about 2 hour drive from Lagos, but really worth it. There are several black heritage museums in the Badagry area, friendly tour guides. Great escape from chaos of Lagos.

There are several interesting places to see in Badagry. We started at the Oba's palace and got a guide from him who took us around in Badagry for the whole day. We visited the Slave Relics museum, the Brasilian baracoon, the Black heritage museum and the point of no return. It was interesting to see the point of no return and imagine how it was when the slaves saw Africa for the last time. Badagry is a very relaxed place and nice city.

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.
