Ws here and loved the set up from the location to private secure parking. Parking can be a problem in Nairobi. This one of the places you will find VIP service as a visitor.

There are a few small rooms that include many art pieces of various media. Although there are many nice artifacts, I was underwhelmed by the small size of the gallery. Regardless, it is worth a visit if you are interested in African art.

Delightful collections. Delightful journey through the art history of Africa. Exquisite. Nearby coffee place, aptly named Point Zero, deepens the experience a lot. Serves the best coffee in the region
