The National Arts Theatre is the primary centre for the performing arts in Nigeria. The monument is located in Iganmu, Lagos state the former capital of the country. The National Arts Theatre was built during the military regime of Chief Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo. Its exterior is shaped like a military hat.
