Nike Art Centre, Lagos, is one of Nigeria's hidden treasures. Located in Lekki, Lagos, the four-story building compromises of an art gallery and textile museum featuring over 7,000 pieces and soon to have Coffee shop. The Centre has a diverse collection of art by a multitude of artists, celebrating Nigeria's talent, offering visitors an insight into all cultures of Nigeria through the medium of art. It can take up to a full day to discover all the Nike Art Centre has to offer. Fortunately, the gallery is open 7 days a week often holding art exhibitions, workshops and cultural days. If you're feeling creative you can take an art course with Nike or go on one of her week-long retreats outside of Lagos in Osun state (Osogbo), Kogi state (Ogidi) and Abuja, all of which you can visit with 'Nike Tours'. The tours offer overnight accommodation at her guesthouses, and partake in creating traditional African crafts such as adire, batik, indigo, beadwork, painting, or carving. Nike Art Centre is an impressive gallery and a must for art lovers.

Nike Arts Gallery is an excellent place to learn and enjoy Nigerian arts and painting. Located in Lekki, it is easily accessible. If you also want colourful local fabrics, you will get them in various colours and designs at the gallery. It is an amazing place to spend an afternoon.

This is one of the most interesting galleries in West Africa. When you enter you feel like you are no longer in Lagos Town - quite a contrast to the rest of the city.

The place is big and they surely have a lot of paintings, statues as well as some traditional artifacts. I found it -compared to what similar things cost in major gallery in Accra, Ghana- quite pricey

Came here with my children and was floored by the pieces here from local nigerian artists. Beautiful! And Madam Nike herself is so hands on. She showed us some of the Adire that is made in my children's hometown explaining how it was made and the varieties. Wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

This place opens your eyes to Nigeria from a different perspective - frankly, one that is hard to imagine given the type of publicity Nigeria gets. Must see location in Lagos in my humble opinion. If you are lucky to meet Mama there, be sure to engage her in conversation - you will surely learn a thing or two about... More

Loved the Nigerian art and the opportunity to meet Nike. The different artists styles could be easily identified through the displays. The shop had some good buys on fabrics, accessories and clothing

We went as a large family group. It's a huge 4-storey building a large open gallery on the ground floor and galleries... More

Hats off to Mme. Nike for having put together such a rich collection of artwork by Nigerian artists. The gallery is located in a beautiful 4-story building, with every inch of space used effectively to display its treasures. Despite this, an equally large collection is stacked along walls and in little side rooms awaiting its turn. This is indeed a... More
