Nice place to spend 2 hrs +. ( can spend much longer, Depends on your taste)

The residents entry is at 600 KSH each( alien card etc)

You see the political history, education, railways, geography, human and animal history. It has art and craft too.

It is on ground and 1st Floor. Well spaced. Open. The shop offers good stuff if some one is interested in buying.

I loved it. Must visit if staying @ kenya. If on a short visit then maybe avoidable though.

Now this is something else! Think animals, think political history, think art, think the history of mankind! It’s all there!
The exhibition on the archeological finds is most impressive.
Why didn’t I come here as a pupil? I finally got to meet homo erectus!

It was good to learn Kenya's history, and see the different species of birds and wildlife ... great for families... easy tour around museum , not heavy with information . You can go at your own pace

We loved our day at the museum! We expected to stay 2 hours and stayed the entire day. They have a wonderful large permanent bird exhibit of East African birds and the history of Kenya permanent exhibit is also excellent. We learned so much. Great gift shops and restaurant. The associated Snake Museum on the grounds was interesting just because we were interested in seeing a Black Mamba and other famous poisonous Kenyan snakes. The snakes were ok but not life changing.

There was so much to see. The cafe on site was great too. The reptile and aquarium displays were excellent. I wish I would have had more time to spend in all the exhibits. I would love to visit again next time I’m in Nairobi.
