Hi guys! Thanks for joining me today, hope you all are feeling good? So I haven’t been out and about for close to two weeks due to malaria and it’s draining me! Feel free to call me a “walk-about” lol but honestly I hate being stuck in a place for too long.
So since I have no new tours to talk about I’m just going to talk about some places I visited before I officially started this blog…. and today, I’ll be talking about one of the oldest art galleries in Lagos which is the Rele Art Gallery.
I visited Rele about 2 months ago with my friend Bukola. We were bored so we decided to check a new place out and get food afterwards (which is typically one of the easiest things to do when you’re bored in Lagos). I suggested Rele because I had seen a picture of it on Instagram and it looked cool so yeah we went there.
Now Rele is one of those places I would say looks better in pictures. I mean we literally didn’t recognize it and we even asked the security guard for directions when we were at the exact location! Silly us though, because we later realized that the name was boldly written above us though it wasn’t really our fault since everything looked really different.
Anyway we swallowed our disappointment and went in and thankfully the interior was way better than the exterior. It was well organized and there was soft music playing in the background. Although there weren’t a lot of artworks in it , the few we saw were actually really cool . I have some pictures below 👇🏼
This was my favorite! So good!Made of Ankara, how A1!Struck a pose , of course 🙂Cute 🙂Some souvenirs for sale. Rele wasn’t so bad after all, it was well kept inside thankfully . It has two floors and pictures are allowed on the ground floor only. I don’t think one would spend more than an hour there honestly, we spent about 30 minutes only.
So guys that’s all about Rele art gallery! Overall I’d rate it a 6 out of 10. I hope you weren’t expecting a very long write up anyway haha. Honestly the thing about art galleries is you’re really just appreciating art and rendering attention to various artists (which they very much appreciate by the way). They aren’t like restaurants or other really fun places which have so much to be talked about. Incase you were wondering it’s located on No 5, Military street, Lagos island, Lagos. What do you think about this place? Would you be visiting it soon? What’s your favorite art gallery in Lagos? Tell us in the comment section below 👇🏼.

By the way if you’re bored this holiday and you don’t know what to do then you should stay tuned for my next post, I’m going to be talking about some fun things to do in Lagos that cost little or close to nothing. Have a great evening xx ❤️
