Badagry Heritage Museum Tours

Badagry Heritage Museum
The Badagry Heritage Museum houses hundreds of artifacts and historical relics chronicling the transportation of slaves through Badagry, which was one of many areas in Africa where slaves were traded before being sent to America. From the beginning of the 16th century, Badagry was one of the main slavery ports on the West African coast, and it is estimated that approximately 550,000 slaves passed through this route. 

There are nine galleries to explore within this one-­storey museum, which takes visitors on a journey through sobering reminders of the slave trade, with documents, shackles, photographs, and other salvaged records from this dark period in the city’s history. However, the museum also explores the history and culture of the area during the pre­ and post-slavery eras, with artefacts and records of the people who inhabited Badagry.

In addition to the museum itself, the entire town of Badagry serves as a living historical museum, from the open market where slaves were auctioned, to the exit route used in the 17th and 18th centuries, known as the Point of No Return.

Practical Info

Badagry is situated around a two-­hour drive from Lagos. Most visitors opt to hire a tour guide to show them around the Badagry Black Heritage Museum and explain the history of the area.
Address: Marina GRA Road, Badagry, Nigeria
