Kalakuta Republic Museum Tours

Kalakuta Republic Museum
Lagos' Kalakuta Republic Museum, a fascinating site full of history, is set in the former home and revolutionary headquarters of famous musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti. The building was Kuti's home from the 1970s until his death in 1997 and is now open as a museum for travelers to explore. A number of personal artifacts and household items are on display.

Kuti was a great advocate of human rights and expressed his concerns about the corruption and dictatorship of the then military government of Nigeria through his music. The afrobeat legend's trademark clothes and shoes feature heavily at the museum, while his bedroom and living room have been left almost untouched, with additional photographs and other items also proudly displayed, such as his saxophone and various album covers.

The museum is the result of Kuti's family's efforts to promote the late musician’s legacy, and was officially opened to the public on October 15, 2012, to mark Kuti's birthday.
