History of National Museum of Unity, Enugu

National Museum of Unity, Enugu was established in 1972in a bid to unify Nigeria after the Nigerian civil war. It is notable as the only thriving museum in the country dedicated to the ‘No Victor, No Vanquished’ slogan of 1970 designed to heal the then self-inflicted festering wounds of the Nigerian Civil War.
