Green grass, nice slopping hills, 2 restaurants, great museum, all good reasons why the museum is a great place to hang out.

“Snake Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Worth going to see the snake park, i found the museum a little boring, but that was mainly because there were lots of school groups who were running around.

“Lucy and others”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

How can you miss seeing Lucy and Tarkana boy? The rest of the museum was also interesting especially the anthropology/cultural and Kenyan history sections although Joy Adamson's pictures were not on display when we visited. The museum has been recently redone and is beautiful. I overheard parts of one of the museum guide's talk, but did not join, because I had a limited amount of time and had priorities.

“museum is a museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

the place had really improved and there seems to be more order than a few years ago, also the eating places are ok though on the expensive side, you need to have a little tuck shop or something for students and others who cannot afford to eat at the cafes....food for though
