Odu’a Museum Opens at Cocoa House Ibadan, Oyo State

Cocoa House in Ibadan famous as one of the first in terms of architectural innovations in South-west Nigeria recently got a complimentary attraction.
The penthouse of the 24-storey structure now houses the Odu’a Museum and Hall of Fame. The museum was conceptualised to promote the history, culture, heritage and ingenuity of the Yoruba people.
The apartment housing the museum is divided into two, giving visitors the option of choosing the museum or the hall of fame from the main entrance.Tastefully decorated and equipped with a blend of contemporary collections, the museum and hall of fame were conceived to preserve and promote the heritage of the Yoruba and by extension educate and entertain tourists about the Yoruba people and culture. The design aims to replicate the traditional Yoruba village setting and thus evoke a sense of nostalgia in those familiar with such.
