ODU’A MUSEUM was established in the year 2013. This museum talk’s more about the history of Yoruba Culture, especially their native appliances used in the olden days.
From the entrance of the museum, there is this flicking light which represents an old pan lantern which is found in the passenge (Akudo) that leads to the museum.
This flicking light is being held by a hand made by man. But the hand holding the old pan has a quote which is “Your hand determines who you are”.
Inside the ODU’A MUSEUM lies a great history I never knew, like the Yoruba peace treaty that happened on the 23rd of September 1886.
The proclamation of peace treaty happened at kiriji-mesin Battlefield by their Five(5) oba’s and their local chief. This oba’s are the first class obas in the year 1937;
1.Ooni of Ife
3.Àlàkè of ogbaland
4.Awujale of Ijebuland
5.Alaafin of oyo.
Some of the things you can see inside the ODU’A MUSEUM are native calabash of different sizes, clay pots, hunter gun, the king crown which the Alaafin of oyo normally put on and also the crown of the native priest, Cloth waving material (Aso-Oke), Wood carving objects, Various kinds of traditional farming implements, Products of colonial technological, Indigenous mats of various types,Traditional musical instruments, Various kinds of pottery wares and utensils, and innovation involving our memories of the past.
This ODU’A MUSEUM is an eye-opener to school children, visitors and other people who are interested in Yoruba cultural values.
There is nothing much to talk about the Hall Of Fame; rather , it’s just Photographs of distinguished individuals who have contributed immensely to the growth of the Yoruba nation and are seen as pioneers in their various careers. Like the likes of Wole Soyinka, Obafemi Awolowo and the rest.The Hall of Fame is an Exploratory Room of attraction and information.
Hall Of Fame and ODU’A MUSEUM are found inside the Cocoa House.
