“a bit more funding, please”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A lot of interesting objects, but the place does not give them space enough to shine. On the upper floor a rich collection of first-day stamp marks describing various events in the last 70-80 years.

The Archives show photos and give information about all the various tribes of Kenya and their traditional lives. It's a very informative and educational exhibition.

“Skip”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Completely disorganized. Disappointing. If it was not Government funded, I am not sure how it would still survive. However, if you are a researcher, you could scramble through things and find a lot of unorganized but valuable information.
