The Nigerian National Museum is one of the
must-visit museums in Nigeria. If you haven't visited yet, here is a brief walk into the museum.

The museum was founded by the English archaeologist Kenneth Murray. The museum has an eminent accumulation of Nigerian workmanship, including bits of statuary and carvings and archaeological and ethnographic displays. You can find galleries dedicated to the Nok Terracottas from Benin City, the bullet-riddled car from the assassination of Murtala Muhammed, carved ivory, ancient royal crowns and intricate handcrafted artefacts from all over Nigeria.

When is the best time to visit the museum?
The museum is open from morning till late evening. It is advisable to go early so you can have enough time to explore the grounds. It is also advisable to call the contact number to confirm gate fee or if there are any special exhibitions.
