If you are a fan of arts and culture, the National Theatre presents you with such luxury. The National Theatre is an architectural masterpiece and a cultural landmark located at Iganmu, in the heart of Lagos. It is easily accessible from every corner of the city. Covering an area of about 23,000 square meters and standing well over 31 meters tall, the multi-purpose National Theatre was established for the preservation, presentation and promotion of Arts and Culture in Nigeria.
The design for the existing National Theatre in Lagos was taken from the Palace of Culture and Sports in Varna, Bulgaria. It has galleries of modern Nigerian art, Nigerian crafts and other African arts. The best time to visit is between 10:00am and 3:00pm Tuesday to Saturday, when all three galleries are open. It is an arena of international music concerts, dramas, film shows, symposia, exhibitions, conventions, workshops and even sports.
