“wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I have had the opportunity to inspect books and writings dating back over 100 years relating to a particular tribe of Kenya. I found all the historical and geographical information I needed.
Very nice and highly trained and informed.

“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.
