Nike Art Centre, Lagos, is one of Nigeria's hidden treasures. Located in Lekki, Lagos, the four-story building compromises of an art gallery and textile museum featuring over 7,000 pieces and soon to have Coffee shop. The Centre has a diverse collection of art by a multitude of artists, celebrating Nigeria's talent, offering visitors an insight into all cultures of Nigeria through the medium of art. It can take up to a full day to discover all the Nike Art Centre has to offer. Fortunately, the gallery is open 7 days a week often holding art exhibitions, workshops and cultural days. If you're feeling creative you can take an art course with Nike or go on one of her week-long retreats outside of Lagos in Osun state (Osogbo), Kogi state (Ogidi) and Abuja, all of which you can visit with 'Nike Tours'. The tours offer overnight accommodation at her guesthouses, and partake in creating traditional African crafts such as adire, batik, indigo, beadwork, painting, or carving. Nike Art Centre is an impressive gallery and a must for art lovers.

Nike Art is always lovely to visit. Go early to avoid traffic. There is a very nice display of real Nigerian art and artists. Take your time. They also have a coffee shop.

Great place to be as a visitor or tourist. Opportunity to buy works of art. Courteous staff. Photography is prohibited. Could provide opportunity to visit other art locations coordinated by the gallery upon enquiry.

This is more like a warehouse than a museum. Pieces are scattered..no informmation..no electricity...no aircon...giggly workers who knew nothing and didnt seem interested in being there...very disappointing.

There is so much art to choose, it's amazing. Showcase Yoruba and Bini art, textiles, metal work, sacred art from Oshogbo and Ife. A really mind boggling spread.

So many beautiful works of art....wats going on here? Aren't people buying them or wat? Very well maintained though. Met one of the artists. Doesn't seem like he gets paid for all his art. I think I'm going off point here. It's a nice place to visit. If you're into stuff like that

Loads of art to be viewed here, spanning 4 floors. Very different art forms on display; paintings and sculptures. Certainly a place for an art lover.
