“Nairobi Railway Museum - Spoorweg museum Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We went here on a Saturday morning expecting rain.
Luckily it turned out be an okay morning since most of he attraction, the trains are outside.
The actual museum was great for us adults with lots of historic things like photographs, models and a nice map showing EAR, East African Railways.
Outside was the main attraction for the kids, lots of trains to look at, climb in and on and run around.
It cost less than KSH 1000 for us 4 which is great value for money.

The only negative point would be the upkeep, but that is probably due to the costs...

Erg leuk om te bezoeken, vooral ook met kinderen.
Aanrader!

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

This small, out of the way museum was a lot of fun. Great for kids who may clamber over old engines and cars. Great story about building the railway and man eating lions!
