“An impressive building...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

This is a super location for photographs with the amazing columns and beautiful front door. If you're interested in researching Kenya's early history, this is the place to go (with McMillan Memorial Library running a close second).

“Excellent African Artefact Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The name of this place is a misnomer. You go to see the African Art collection of a former politician who bequeathed his art to the museum. Very interesting masks and other objects from all over Africa. Small but interesting. They sell the last ticket at 4:30 PM but are happy to let you look around until 5:30 PM.
