Uganda has a treasure trove of culture hidden in its history. It was exciting to experience the history of Uganda, especially the different waring kingdoms and the advent of Christianity in Uganda. I enjoyed visiting the different huts that were on display in the Museum compound.

Worth a (short) visit - in fact have been several times. Its future precarious as govt want to knock it down for unnecessary 30 storey commercial building. Uganda has little built heritage - this must be protected. Does need a facelift - the presentation is very much a product of it day; that being the 1950's of the British Protectorate.

Like most museums it changes so for some it may not be the same...I found it lacking and just thrown together. Being the only real museum here I was hoping for more but hey some culture and knowledge is better than none!

Uganda museum is fine but nothing much a part from a few collection of history about Uganda as a country right from colonial rule of the British in 1890 to 1962 when Uganda got Independence.

Well we didn't expect much which was good. It's pretty run down and exhibits seem kind of random. I realize they probably don't get much funding, but a little bit of creativity would help too. Power point presentation printed out on A4 really isn't what you expect from a "national" museum. It's a shame, I can think of lots of things that would be interesting to see and learn about.
It costs little so if you have time and are in the neighborhood (at UWA for example) it might be worth a peek. Wouldn't go out of my way though.
