Never been inside but it is truly a beautiful building to walk around - the architecture is amazingly beautiful, in my view ! Worth a short walk in that area and also get to see the High Courts & Mnazi Moja Hospital which is an interesting take on Art Deco architecture. It would be great if the road passed state... More

This should be a place to find the collection of Zanzibar culture. But with only 10 minutes walk around inside you'll bored. there's a lot of display congested on one area with less word to explain. No guider to guide you through the museum, just you are left alone to wonder with no one to ask question about anything displayed.... More

Nothing much to see and very disappointing. Looks like they put stuff just for the sake of it and all meaningless.

Very nice looking on the outside, but the tour would probably take like 5 minutes because there is very little to see....

When we visited in Nov 2015, this was a work in progress with little to see (hence the 'poor' rating). The building itself is beautiful and with some effort, this could be another badly-needed attraction for Stone Town. Staff we met there were friendly and committed to better days ahead.

On one of the many strolls discovering stone town we passed by the peace museum. The building is beautiful and we enjoyed our time in there. It is not a massive museum, just a simple hall. There are only a few pictures and stories displayed. But it still gave some interesting insights, relating to historical facts and stories that we... More

The Peace Memorial Museum is a lovely white building in Stone Town. A nice museum to visit. Beautiful grounds and a well maintained piece of history.

The building itself is very beautiful. I paid the entrance fee (1500 shilling) to get inside. The place is almost empty. There is some old photos around the walls and that's pretty much it. It's worth pay the entrance fee to get inside and see the building from the inside. It gets low rate because the museum itself is terrible.
