A well stocked and very informative museum. The guide who took us through was very knowledgable and answered our many questions so well. He obviously loves his job and the history of his beautiful country which came through in his enthusiasm. Definitely a place worth visiting!

We stopped here en route from the Khama rhino sanctuary to our next destination. It was totally impromptu and we were really pleased we did.

The museum itself is in the house where Seretse Khama lived. It's a little bit ramshackle but full of well presented information. We were guided around the whole museum by a really helpful and knowledgeable young lady who brought the story to life for us.

It gave us a new found interest in the history of Botswana and the Khama family. I'd reccomend going here if you're in the area.

An excellent guide took time and care to tell us about the exhibits and about the Khama family, then took us to the Khama graves and to the local market. A great bargain and extremely well done.

We stopped here on a whim after a trip to the Khama Rhino Sanctuary. It's a little hard to find the museum after turning from the main road where you see a small "museum" directional sign but just look for the only place with 5 or 6 parking spots in the front. It looks like you're going into a private residence, probably because it WAS a private residence (sorry, can't remember whose) that's been restored.

Local volunteers staff the museum and while we could have wandered around on our own, the friendly young man who was on duty that day was happy to give us a personal tour (it had been a few days since anyone else signed the guest register!). The museum tells the story of the town itself (tribal home to the current President Khama, who is chief when he comes home for a visit), holds many family articles from the elder Chief Khama III (grandfather to current president) and Seretse Khama (father of current president) who was instrumental in Botwana's independence in the 1960's and his English wife who loved the country and stayed even after her husband's death. It also houses a nice exhibit on the local tribal and San cultures.

We enjoyed a fascinating hour in the museum and were able to find some nice local crafts in the small gift shop as well. I highly recommend a stop here if you're interested in the recent history of Botswana.

(The house is a little run down with some lights not working in several displays, so it's not a 5-star review.)
