This is where to go on a free afternoon if you like to understand more about the Nigerian culture and history. The guides are very knowledgable and friendly. The displays takes you through ancient history, everyday life style and cultural aspects, as well as the political transitions. I learnt a lot and recommend to anyone wanting to know more about the environment you want to do business in.
Awesome experience. Make sure you have 2 or 3 hours to dedicate to see everything. There is a lot of history to see here.
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!
a love the conservation of the tarditinal african cultures and people ,i love a lot of the artifacts etc
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.
A real and interesting place to get a vivid knowledge of African and Nigerian heritage, is must for everyone that needs to learn about Black history
The museum is housed in an old colonial house that needs maintenance pronto. It is an average museum where you can get a glimpse into black heritage. The tour guide was excellent
