Trip to the Badagry Slave Museum
Badagry Slave Museum are you looking for an educational and fun day trip in Nigeria? Look no further than the Badagry Slave Museum! Recently, I had the opportunity to arrange a Daycation trip to Badagry Slave Museum for Lulu her dad and friends, and it was an unforgettable experience.
Our means of transportation to Badagry was by boat. We all met at the BCS boat garden on the highland and took a boat ride to Badagry. The journey itself was a beautiful experience, with stunning views of the water and coastline.
On arriving at Badagry, we were welcomed by Desire, my assistant, who took us on a tour of Badagry. We started by visiting the Brazilian Baracoon, a former slave holding cell that has been converted into a museum. The museum provided us with insight into the history of the slave trade in Nigeria and the impact it had on the country’s development.
Next, we visited the first-story building in Nigeria, which was built by the Anglican missionaries in 1845. The building served as a store for ammunition and guns during the colonial era.
We also visited the Mobee Slave Relics Museum, which showcases a wide variety of artifacts and exhibits that illustrate the history and culture of the area. We took a tricycle named ‘Keke Napep’ to Vleke slave market, where we saw firsthand the slave trade that took place in the past.
Other places we visited included Lord Lugard’s residence, an early missionary cemetery, the British abolitionist cannon gun, the first primary school in Nigeria, and the slave port of no return. Along the way to the slave port, we saw different artifacts, people of different cultures and denominations, and stopped at the attenuation well.
We had a picnic at the waterfront, where we enjoyed Nigerian Jollof rice and grilled food. It was a great time to relax, eat, and party before going back to our initial pickup point.
Overall, our trip to the Badagry Slave Museum was both educational and entertaining. We learned about the history and culture of Nigeria and had a great time doing it. If you’re looking for a unique and unforgettable experience in Nigeria, I highly recommend adding the Badagry Slave Museum to your itinerary. Plus my team is on standby if you need a tour guide.
