“Priceless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I was with a group of guides in the Nai Ni Who? CBD walking tours festival when Mr. Alan Donovan the chairman of Murumbi Trust invited us for a tour of the Murumbi African Heritage Collections exhibited at The Nairobi Gallery.

The collections of African art, crafts, textiles, jewellery, books and stamps are unique and rare. I enjoyed the tour completely.
I then joined the African Heritage Guide course offered by The Murumbi Trust, where i emerged the top student and now a guide at the Nairobi Gallery, Murumbi African Heritage Collections.
I recommend it to all travellers who find themselves in Nairobi. Karibuni! Welcome! Soyez le bien venu! Herzlich wilkommen!

“Good way to learn about African art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We visited this new gallery because it was recommended by my friend and host in Nairobi. It was great! Our guide Felix was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot in a short period of time.
Its right in downtown Nairobi, so if you need a walk afterwards before facing the traffic, you can do what we did and go a few blocks to a Java House. Good coffee and bathrooms.

“Amazing photo exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We happened to stumble upon the gallery on a walk around Nairobi. Currently they are displaying an amazing exhibit of photographs from the 2007-2008 election crisis entitled Kenya On Fire. These amazing and tragic photos are not to be missed.
