“Kisumu museum visit”
Review of Kisimu museum

Kisimu museum
Ranked #2 of 20 things to do in Kisumu
Attraction details
Reviewed May 10, 2013

A visit to Kisumu museum was good. I viewed snake and I was amazed by a very large python, sand vipers and others. The gallery was exciting though it is very small. The traditional houses showed signs of disrepair as rain water had leaked to the walls and some traditional stores had collapsed.
Generally I enjoyed the visit but was concerned about the poor maintenance of the facility.

Needs a bit of updating, and work, but it's great museum considering it's location and access to resources. I learned more about Luo culture going through the exhibits than I had in the previous months living in town. The fish tanks needs some love, but the other animal exhibits are fun.

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
