“A lovely little museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

The National Archives is a grand building in a busy part of Nairobi. The building itself is magnificent and the interior is filled with a magnificent open museum. All sorts of exhibits are on display, from war masks to Kenyan stamps, and both Kenya and other African nations are represented amongst the displays. The $300 KES entry is a bargain and the National Archives are worth every shilling.

“ART WORK AT ITS BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

I dare say that this building makes you forget that you are in the middle of the central business district. once you enter those doors, the calm serene air that greets you wants you to know more about the art work on display.
