“a bit more funding, please”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

A lot of interesting objects, but the place does not give them space enough to shine. On the upper floor a rich collection of first-day stamp marks describing various events in the last 70-80 years.

“Great history lesseon”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The Archives show photos and give information about all the various tribes of Kenya and their traditional lives. It's a very informative and educational exhibition.

“Skip”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Completely disorganized. Disappointing. If it was not Government funded, I am not sure how it would still survive. However, if you are a researcher, you could scramble through things and find a lot of unorganized but valuable information.

“An impressive building...”
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).
