The building itself is very beautiful. I paid the entrance fee (1500 shilling) to get inside. The place is almost empty. There is some old photos around the walls and that's pretty much it. It's worth pay the entrance fee to get inside and see the building from the inside. It gets low rate because the museum itself is terrible.

We didn't know what to expect. The next door museum of natural history is tiny...........and closed. So it was a surprise to find the peace museum open. And a surprise that 95% of the display is about Emily Ruette, born a princess in Zanzibar in 1844. An amazing woman. Apart from that, just a few old photos of Zanzibar and... More

This is an architecturally impressive building which was meant to commemorate Peace. Unfortunately, the interior is not really kept up. When we were there, there was an exhibit about the life of a well-known Zanzibaran princess. The exhibit was repetitive and not impressive in any way. The gov't really should put more focus on this supposed attraction.
