This is one place everyone needs to visit as it holds every information about the late Afro beat Legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti. There is also a gift shop and souvenir,where you can get Tshirts with Fela printed on them and Cd's of Fela. Wait till you get to see the Rooftop bar at the Museum. Beautiful place to visit.

Kalakuta Republic is an amazing place to visit. It symbolic reminder of the life of the owner, Fela is a lesson worthy of preserving for generations to come. Fela represented the vision and aspirations of every oppressed person in Africa and Nigeria.
