The place is good to visit and it's right at the heart of Nairobi. If one wants to study more about Kenyan history and politics, that's the place to go. It's very near the monument of the late Tom Mboya, a real hero in Kenyan early history.

I walked to the National Archives from the Intercontinental. The displays offer a detailed picture of Kenya, its people and the culture. Make sure you go there

The museum is interesting but you really have to take some time to go through and read all the little details to get most out of it. The presentation is fairly basic and wouldn't be engaging for someone not willing to commit the time and effort to digging around a bit. Would only recommend if you've got some time and are eager to do a little research on your own. If you put in the effort though you'll be pleasantly rewarded with some interesting stories and information and some fascinating artefacts.

This is a really great 'must see' as it really gives you an insight into this great country. All the staff were very pleasant and made us feel very welcome.

Kenya's National Archives is located in one of Nairobi's oldest stone buildings, the former Bank of India built in 1906. The first floor and much of the second floor houses the Murambi Gallery, a fascinating collection of art and artifacts from Joseph and Sheila Murumbi, tow of Africa's most famous collectors. Joseph Murumbi was Kenya's first Foreign Minister and the nation's second Vice President.

The postage stamp display on the second floor and the wood carvings on the first floor were visual feasts for me. My son enjoyed the photographs taken during the early days of Kenya's independence.
