Nairobi National Museum - Review

The National Museums of Kenya (NMK) is a State Corporation that supervises Museums, Sites and Monuments in Kenya. It is a highly famous and central attraction and zone of perfection regarding the heritage exploration of the nation, along with an abundance of mastery in subjects ranging from palaeontology, ethnography and biodiversity investigation to national protection. Its home office and the National Museum (Nairobi National Museum) are spotted on the Museum Hill, close to the Uhuru Highway between the Central Business District and the Westlands of Nairobi. The NMK was established by the East Africa Natural History Society (E.a.n.h.s.) in 1910, and the Society's primary objective was and has been to direct a continuously indiscriminating and investigative examination of the common qualities of the East African community groups. The exhibition hall houses gallery accumulations and exhibition shows, of both occasional and lasting displays. Presently, the NMK administers over 22 territorial display centers, numerous destinations, and landmarks over the country. The Nairobi National  Museum had re-opened its avenues to the general visitors in June 2008, and was renovated with another look. The gallery houses both provisional and permanent shows to guarantee it remains vibrant and interesting throughout the year. Different attractions inside the grounds incorporate the Nairobi Snake Park and the Botanic Garden and nature trail. The gallery's business wing has restaurants and shops to guarantee a significant and wholesome experience for the international visitors.

Nairobi National Museum, Nairobi Reviews

  • All history in details about Kenya and East Africa you will find here. Starting from animals, ancestors, generations, animals, revolutions struggles events, under colonial rules, skulls, photos, freedom fighters clothes, weapons, currency e.t.c. I was fascinated on one dedicated room of “Birds of East Africa” hundreds wax bird frames on frames with details. I highly recommend a visit if you are in Nairobi it’s worth experience to explore. Wheelchair accessible on most of the entrance / exit points.

  • This is one of the places to visit if touring Nairobi. Its a place very popular with schools and tourist groups. There's a botanical garden as well, ideal for photo shoots and relaxing. The Nairobi Snake Park is also found here. There are departments popular with cultural and scientific research. occasionally there are events held here. The facility is accessible from Kipande Road

  • Nice place with cool atmosphere. if you want a place to cool off you better visit this place. See pythons.. tortoises... Crocodiles... Get to go to the library and learn something new. Cool place to be.

  • Nice place for an afternoon walk. Apart from the snakes, fishes, and other creatures, you can take a walk through their lush and green gardens. Very nice place for that peace of mind mood..

  • The NMK as we know it... Holds great historical memorabilia of Kenya and East Africa... A great institution where one can learn a lot. If you are new to Nairobi, it should be in your itinerary. I am sure you will appreciate the well-informed guides.
