Learn about the heritage and impact one man can leave at Kalakuta Republic Museum. Opened in 2012 on the singer's birthday, the former home of Fela Anikulapo Kuti offers a view into 1970's life--the bedroom and record studio were left untouched. The revolutionary center of an idealistic man who believed in a state independent from Nigeria's corruption, the museum shows his musical and political legacy through displays of everyday items, including clothes, saxophones, and even a shoe collection. Walk the museum to feel his rebellious spirit in every item displayed, and learn about the history of music.

Nice place to relax & write. Good reception for my wifi & I can eat while I'm on break from writing or relaxing. The Relationship Museum, inspires Artists like me. I create in this zones. A penny for my words. I sing to your soul. Rachiewabbit...it's Wabbit Season!
It was awesome for the first few times, but recently the management as been on the roll due to some inappropriate behaviors from some customers. it is absolutely rude and wrong to discriminate your entire customer base due to the action of a few especially when you keep it open to friends and family. Great place when you know the management. Not so if you're just looking for a place to chill. You can always book on Facebook though if you don't mind.
