History of National Museum of Colonial History

National Museum of Colonial History was established in 1985.

So much has happened after Nigeria's colonial period that over time, life before colonization has become a mystery to all but a few. Luckily here in this museum, history has been preserved from the pre-colonization times to the beginning of the post-colonial era.
