    The outside looks great and enticing. But I’ll like to know the cost of accessing the gallery to feed my eyes.

    I have been to the one in Abuja, and trust me it is nothing like that of Lagos. In Abuja, it’s more of a research centre and workshop area, with hostel for staff and student on-site. Nevertheless it unique in it’s own way – like the infinity garden right from the entrance to the main halls to the beautifully sculptures made from scrap metal.

    Well, it’s a sight to appreciate for the art lovers.
