“Very nice museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is a very good way to kill several hours in Nairobi. The museum is well organized. Be sure to accept the offer of a tour guide. There is no charge for this. Our guide was so good that we tipped her. It was thrilling to see many of the Leaky discoveries. The cafe is mediocre, the coffee terrible.

“Learn about Kenya!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We walked from the Stanley Hotel - not recommended! Take a taxi. Once there the contents were fascinating, well laid out and easy to understand. There is a snake pit, botanical gardens, ethnic entertainment and a restaurant. Well worth a visit.
