This museum gives you a great introduction to Kenya if you are willing to let it. It is a little worn and the presentation of the exhibits is not as slick as westerners are accustomed to. But if you take the time to get into the exhibits you will discover some real gems. My favorites: 1) A room with a just about every bird in Kenya - they even apologize for not having a male, female and juvenile specimen of every species; 2) A thorough, accessible and informative presentation of the history of Kenya; 3) and then you turn the corner and you are in a vault among some of the most significant anthropological discoveries in the world including Turkana boy, the oldest known full skeleton of a prehistoric human. I enjoy the school groups there in their colorful uniforms and friendly smiles and both times I have gone there have been entertainers in the nice courtyard. My view is take a guide if offered; goodness knows it is a generous thing to do given the standard of living here (don't forget to tip) and you will make a connection with a very knowledgable Kenyan. But it is no problem to do on your own if you prefer.
