National Archives is a beautiful building in city center . It has rich history. Not just of Kenya but also of other African countries like Ethiopia, Uganda and Tansania. If you are a stamp collector, you will love whats available.

“A lovely little museum”
5 of 5 stars 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.
