  • This is a great place for a tourist to visit. Brings out the best of East African artists. Nice restaurants for a quick bite. Adequate parking. Extensive collection of art and souvenirs. You need to bargain for a better price. Friendly and professional service. They accept US dollars and credit cards. You could just visit without buying anything too if you wish to view the art in display.
  • Amazing art. And so much of it. I recommend you save plenty of time to take a while tour, because there are at least huge 4 flours of art. If you love art, I say you keep half a day for the trip here. And it is amaaazing. You won't regret.
