Great place for both kids and adults to learn the cradle of mankind. collected artifacts from the early 20's can be found here. really in expensive for both locals and foreigners.easily accessible from hotels and routes and also with the help of Google Maps, in the museum there is also a gallery.ample parking and tight security.
Super interesting! It approaches you to African culture and more precisely the Kenya one from different perspectives. I think ot is important to include these kind of visits in the tourism trips and not stay only with the safaris and animals.
