“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Well worth visiting - those visionary no limits Victorians - why not build a railway rising 5000 feet thru Lion infested lands

“RELI - railway in swahili”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

I went to the Railway museum with my uncle, sister and two friends.
I found it interesting learning about the history, former presidents in East-Africa and working conditions for those who where building the railway line.

We went inside the old trains, and took pictures of the old equiments, chairs and so on.
For those who like learning about history and/or like trains this is the place for you!

“Wonderful half day trip for kids in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Hidden away at the edge of Nairobi city centre, the railway museum is a must for anyone with kids for a few hours. The museum is a little on the tired side but the trains themselves are a great source of adventure and curiosity for the kids. bring your own snacks and drinks but be prepared to get up and down and into and out of the trains... Great fun
