  • It showing the village culture and instruments used by the villagers. Also has small exhibition of hand made stuff, art paintings. One can also enjoy the restaurant.
  • Beautiful examples of traditional houses. As a highlight I would mention a local artisan named Peter who has done wonders with clay and banana leaf. Very refreshing experience on a hot day in Dar.
