  • All the vehicles used by different heads of state of Uganda is a very interesting museum pieces that must be preserved and more added to the stock in the decades and centuries to come. The Museum has invaluable artifacts whose photographs are found in history books on Uganda. It very interesting to find in the Museum a pouch for manhood that was worn as part of Langi daily dressings for protection.
  • A really good place to learn about Ugandan history. Nice and competent guide. 👍
