  • Very interesting Museum, dulls a little small but explains everything in a way more fun because at the entrance is given a tablet and the Lord explains how we should use more creative to the explanation of the history of slavery and a bit of the city of Lagos, being an initiative of go to this museum because it is completely different from visits to museums to which we are accustomed only to view and read the informative descriptive This arouses the curiosity to see what you can find at the foot of each discritivo.

  • Enjoyed the fish served at the local restaurant.
  • Este renovado núcleo museológico Mercado dos Escravos dá-nos uma imagem da importância da cidade de Lagos enquanto porta de entrada de escravos e o seu papel de destaque nos descobrimentos portugueses. A adoção de novas tecnologias e interatividade permite uma excelente viagem ao passado e uma reflexão em relação a outras formas de escravatura que, infelizmente, ainda subsistem. A não perder!
