  • Housed in a former (Colonial) government office/ private home this personal collection of a Kenyan official (pictured with Ladybird Johnson in a photo) packs a wallop. Practically across the street.....  more »
  • A good collection of beautiful objects not only from Kenya but from many parts of Africa worth good explanations, in a very nice colonial building in the city centre. Worth seeing.  more »

  • Stopped in to take a look at the Murumbi collection and so some really nice art work and artifacts...... Beautiful bits and pieces of Africa's rich history. Can't wait to see the next exhibit
  • Quite small and expansive for what it has to offer but still worth a visit if you are in the area. If you have a choice I would definitely recommend to see the National Museum of Nairobi instead.
