Its Just a palace and not a Museum
Jan 2018
I have had cause to drive down to Iga Idungaran but the place is always locked up and the guards are not so friendly. I feel the palace is an institution, a custodian of the history and culture of we Lagosians. Someone should be responsible to attend to inquiries. I will dig more at my next visit. please stay tuned for next reviews.

Went there base on TA reviews and guess what, they told me to write in and request permission to visit! The building looked very ordinary so no chance of writing to anyone....

Ancient renovated

The traditional residence-palace of the Oba of Lagos, Nigeria finally renovated with modern day architecture to remind visitors of the deep cultural values of the Lagosians. It could be the rallying point of all Lagosians both young and old that could bridge the gap between the past and the future. Cute!

Not much of place to visit

The usual slum like look of Lagos, but core traditional aura could be seen. Everyone here has a relationship with the Obaship stool. Beware of area boys who may try to tax you for parking. a little tip of between 200 to 300 person is okay.
