What would be the first of its kind facility donation by an individual, Yemisi Shyllon Museum of Art is fast becoming a reality at Pan Atlantic University (PAU), Ajah, Lagos.
Donated to the university by one of Africa’s revered art collectors, Omooba Yemisi Shyllon, the current state of work-in-progress indicates that the completion of the museum is just a matter of months.

About two years ago, Shyllon signed MoU with PAU at Oba Elegushi office of the institution's Pro-Chancellor, Mr. Paschal Dozie. The donor stated that the proposed-museum will be Nigeria's first ever "one-stop-non-government museum."
