“Cultural and natural museum”
Review of Kisimu museum

Kisimu museum
Ranked #2 of 20 things to do in Kisumu
Attraction details
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Very informative and interesting. The entrance fee is 500shilling and it is worth visiting if you have 1-2 hours you need to spend. There is a lot of information about the region and its tribes, including an aquarium with the fish found in lake Victoria and the sorrounding area as well as snakes, crocodiles and turtles.

paying tourist price per ticket - you get used to t but getting value out of it sometimes is helpful... not recommend unless you are doing a research on the Kisimu

The museum is well sign posted and the indoor displays useful and intelligently described. Outside, a Luo homestead has been created, again with good signing. Rather distressing to see the crocodiles and snakes in such small spaces, but one of the tortoises was being allowed a walk outside his pen, Apart from the wild-dlife, well worth a visit and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Small museum of average quality, random collection of live animals in their back garden but was interesting to walk around the replica Luo village
