What to see in Lagos

Lagos Attractions


While Lagos doesn't draw many visitors for sightseeing, there are nonetheless many interesting attractions to see while in the city. Lagos has a number of interesting museums, including The National Museum of Nigeria, the Didi Museum, the Nike Art Gallery, and the National Theatre of Arts and Culture.

Lagos has a number of great sightseeing opportunities, but for some the noise, hustle and bustle of the city's streets and markets will seem enough of a sightseeing experience. Lekki Market is a great experience, and one of the best places to experience what city life in Lagos is all about.

After a few days in Lagos many visitors may feel the need for some peace and quiet, there are a number of great attractions within an hour's drive from central Lagos. There are a number of excellent beaches in the area, including Eleko Beach, Bar Beach, Elegushi, and Lekki Beach. Nearby beach resorts like Hermitage Garden Resorts and La Campagne Tropicana on the Lekki Peninsula are worth a visit, as is the Lekki Conservation Centre. Finally, no trip to Lagos is complete without a visit to Sungbo's Eredo to see the largest pre-colonial construction Africa has to offer, or the ancient slave port of Badagary Town.
