This is a small but interesting museum. Although it could be better curated, I came away with a greater understanding of Nigerian culture, history and perspective of the slave trade.

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

It is a good start for anyone who has interest in Black Heritage but don't expect to leave with the whole story and I think better attention could have been paid to the quality of the displays etc.
If you combine with the Calabar Museum, then you'll be sure to get a better picture on the Nigerian perspective of slave trade.

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.
