This building is the only place in Nairobi to get a proper cityscape view. The entrance fee is 400sh, and you will be led to a special elevator up to the rooftop, which houses a helipad and viewing deck. Since Nairobi is generally a low-rise city, you'll get a pretty unobstructed view across the different sections of the city. I was happy to have a very nice guide who welcomed me and provided a detailed explanation of different places you can see from the rooftop and their significance, as well as some general history. (No extra cost to you and helpful since there is no signage). Nairobi is not the prettiest city from the ground, but from the sky the railway museum, Parliament building, central park and downtown area actually make for a picturesque backdrop. I was actually the only one up there for a while. The convention center itself is a very out-dated concrete building and sorely in need of a make-over.
