This place is enormous and is guaranteed to have whatever souvenir you came here expecting to buy. Almost anything can be haggled down for a lesser price, and the tanzanite here is the best quality we saw anywhere. They do take credit card, and will eagerly tell you they ship anywhere in the world. The gallery of fine art next to the main shop area is absolutely incredible and huge (the largest museum in Tanzania!). Plus they have wi-fi in the restaurant!
The name is a little misleading, making you think this will be some kind of museum or craft workshop. It's really just a really well-stocked gift shop, and it's unclear who has made these items and where the money you're paying will go to. A word of advice, especially for those on Thomson Safaris: there's a workshop down the street that we also went to called Shanga Shangaa. It employs local handicapped Tanzanians, especially women, to produce crafts-- many of which are identical in appearance to the ones at Cultural Heritage Centre. If you can, buy things like coffee, fabrics, and clothing at Shanga Shangaa instead-- you know the money is going to a good cause!
