“Each to his own”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2014 NEW

Nothing went wrong just didn't meet my expectations shouldn't have watched the film first liked the gardens they were quiet and tranquil we were the only tourist there so perhaps might have enjoyed it more if it had been busier

“Lame!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2014

Yawn! I don't know if we had a bad guide or it is just a filler activity on tours in Nairobi. This museum was boring and I felt a waste of our time. The grounds were pretty, but that's about it.

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2014

After finishing what brought you to the Karen Blixen Museum, dont be in a hurry, take some sips of freshly baked coffee. The staff are very courteous, hospitable and professional and the snacks excellent.

“Popular venue for relaxing with friends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2014

Great spot to sit outside and relax, and enjoy some food and drinks. Have visited here a few times over the last 20 years, and I feel it has lost some of it's distinctive feel. Too many widescreen TVs inside have spoilt this lovely venue. Stay outside and enjoy the sunshine.
