How do I start this review. Hmmm...

The Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library is a library owned by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a former President of Nigeria. It is a historic, tourist and academic centre established as a national archive for the preservation of documents and materials used by the president during his tenure as the president of Nigeria. The library is located at Abeokuta, Ogun State in Nigeria. Source: Wikipedia

One of the first things you'd notice is the magnificent building that is this Presidential Library. It's such a huge edifice and you can't but marvel at it from the outside.

When you go in you'd be in for more surprises. We were first shown the museum of his life from birth to when he became a democratic president and another room from his time as a democratic president till date. A section of the museum too was dedicated to his wife Stella Obasanjo then we moved to somewhere across the facility to see all the cars he used.

What we loved about the OOPL:

We absolutely loved the ambiance and how well maintained it is. We also loved that the documentation of his life was deliberate for this purpose as well, the history beyond what we read in the media and our democracy was well documented. It's just amazing and so inspiring to experience. The access to the library is close to the entrance of Abeokuta which makes it easy to locate and the place creates employment for nothing less than 500 people if not more.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable, patient, and accommodating.

What we didn't like:

history documentary
Timeline of Baba's birth to drafting

I don't think there is anything I can really say I don't like about the place, honestly. It's just that amazing.

5 cuddly loves! I really suggest you visit at least once. It's such an educational and rewarding experience. The kids were a bit distracted but different things around the library will pique their interest.
