Nigeria’s creativity is not promoted as much as it should be. So, I take it upon myself to share this creativity on my platform. Nike art gallery Lagos is one of the top places on my bucket list since I started blogging. I recently visited this place and I am in love. Nike art gallery is owned by Chief Nike Davies Okundoye. She is such a pleasant Lady. So, if you want to talk to her, you can easily reach out to her. The gallery is a 5 storey building full of paintings of different types. Also, the gallery has sculptures as well as craft items. My best is the crafts of lovely chairs, tables, etc. These give me so many ideas for options to decorate my dream home. (**Sighs**).

The building is hard to miss by the road side. Nike art gallery is open from Mondays to Sundays. So, you can visit at any day of the week. However, the opening hours is from 10am to 6pm. I wish they could review the time. (lol).
On my visit, I got there almost 5 pm due to the Lagos traffic and other stopovers. I hope to revisit again someday. Nike art gallery is also in other parts of Nigeria: Osogbo and Abuja. So, if you are in these other parts of Nigeria, you can check them out.
How much does it cost to get into Nike art gallery? It cost you nothing to enter the gallery. It is free to access. Also, there is no restriction to any part of the gallery. I walked all the stair to the apex to enjoy the arts and crafts.
