Established in 2017, the library owned by former President Olusegun Obasanjo is strategically located at Abeokuta, Ogun state, the home state of the ex-president.

The tradition of having a presidential library started in 1939 by President Franklin D Roosevelt of America who gave his official documents for national use.
In 1955, America then passed the Presidental Libraries Act to make the project of having a presidential library formal.
The Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library is a house to the former president’s properties which he used when he was the president. A section of the library showcases the vehicles and an helicopter the president used on duty.
Another section also showed the different deference craft like a war ship that Obasanjo must have used as a military officer or head of state.
