  • You can experience Kenyan culture and so on.
  • I suggest coming here for two reasons: 1. If it is your first trip to Kenya and not have much time, this museum will teach you a huge amount of knowledge on this fabulous country. 2. If you are going to spend a lot of time in Kenya or are already knowledgeable, the museum will help you understand better some nuances or clarify some aspects that you missed. I strongly suggest hiring a guide. You can also buy modern art in the up floor.
