We went here at the end of a day out so we didn't have long. My husband had been here before and wasn't keen as he hadn't had a good experience, however the reviews on line were good. When we got there my husband said that it had been recently refurbished. I enjoyed what we did see and could have easily have spent longer. There was a nice cafe which seemed reasonably priced.

Nice place to visit if you have some spare time in Nairobi.
I liked the museum premises, nice garden and small snake park. There is also a cafe in front of the museum entrance where we had a good and cheap lunch. There are also some souvenir shops where I found nice things and not too expensive.

I was not very impressed with the museum contents, but it was a nice overall experience. We got to the museum by foot from city center and the way there and the museum location is not very nice.

I would recommend the compound ticket museum and snake park.

The area about the primet section where you find the ancient fossils of man, is excellent. also the stuffed birds are great.

It filled a couple of hours for us and sure, we're all supposedly affluent foreigners but the price was a bit rich for what was on offer.
