  • This is probably the smallest museum in terms of surface area. It however teems with history including the first formal school in East Africa that was build by Church Missionary Society. Also, there is plenty of history of the Rabai documented here including the first translation of the Christian Bible into Swahili and other local dialects. I also loved the pottery work done by the Rabai people. The staff is jovial and helpful.
  • The museum is at the first church building in Kenya and East Africa established by Dr Ludwig Krapf.
