“have to visit the museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

National Archives is a beautiful building in city center . It has rich history. Not just of Kenya but also of other African countries like Ethiopia, Uganda and Tansania. If you are a stamp collector, you will love whats available.
