“we have come from far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

It was quite to get some information concerning the history of the pearl of African and the nice environment around. To me it was a good experience like never before. You know has a varriety in regard to cultural differences so the museum is the answer to all your un answered question about Uganda.

“Not really a museum of quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

I was quite disappointed when I arrived here. I hoped to learn something about Uganda's culture, people, history but a louzy presentation of some "hero's", some pots and pans were showcased. Not worth your time or your money.

“Nice introduction of Ugandan people”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

we saw the museum in our first stop in Kampala.it was quiet enjoyable for an African museum with all of musical instruments & different kinds of lodges.
it has a big green yard full of banana trees and interesting birds where you can rest during your visit.

“Exhibitions interesting if a little dated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Interesting museum, particularly the musical instruments which were fun to play. Exhibitions are a little old though - nothing more up to date inside. Good selection though and can spend an hour to hour and a half here.
