Why bother going into the half functioning theater when there is enough beauty on the outside? The sculptures, the trees, the carvings on the walls, the architecture, the lakes, the submerged bridges, and roads, the lawns, the thick bushes, the horses, the picnickers, etc.

I did see a play there (Altine's Wrath) and it was thrilling. If there isn't a performance going on, just walk around the premises, it's relaxing. Or pack a picnic basket and find a quiet corner with your gang. Lovely place! (And they wanted to sell it off for a mall).

The National Art Theatre is one of the historical tour destination in Lagos. It is an ideal tourist destination for Private and Group tours. It is educative for the children and it is a place of history and an architectural master piece.

Went picnicking and met quite a large number of other people out there with the same intention as ours. Didn't have access to the Art Gallery but the front view art work made a tremendous piece of great background for some nice pictures!

Construction was completed in 1976 in preparation for the Festival of Arts and Culture in 1977.Between 1975, and July 2009, the National Theatre has been managed by six successive Administrators. In August 2009, a new General Manager assumed the headship of the National Theatre Management with a new vision.

This Landmark is embodied with so much history, being the first place Nigeria celebrated the biggest Tourism event, Festival of Arts and Culture in 1977 (FESTAC77). Built by a Bulgarian company and today its still use for a lot of cultural activities and events.

Everything that should make a place great fun is there. The movie theatre, arts theatre, artifacts, spaces for restaurants and eateries etc etc. But corruption reigns supreme and the place is run down by the government people handling things. My heart bled when I discovered the National Arts Theatre - what corruption can destroy.

This is one of the landmarks in Lagos State, a very prominent structure in the heart of the city. Well maintained but is neglected by people. also has cultural museum near by.
