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.

Nairobi National Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • This was a great museum to learn about Kenyan culture, history, and more importantly history of mankind and evolution. Make sure to ask for a guide, It's by tip, so they make sure they explain things really well. It was definitely the highlight if our Nairobi trip.

  • Took me back to when I was 10. Lovely place if you wanna remember why you're a proud Kenyan. Rich heritage. Good people. Good restaurants (but charge a pretty penny). Highly recommend it.

  • the National Museum of Kenya is the Premier museum in Kenya. it hosts a number of natural exhibits and also a number of cultural exhibits. it is located near the Nairobi central District and has great ambience and the Architecture is reminiscent of the early Nairobi. There is ample parking space also the security is well-maintained and high-end security companies secure the environment. The national police has also deployed a couple of GSU offices station nearby. I had a great time and I enjoyed all that it had to offer I really advise someone to visit the area as it was a great experience for me.

  • I enjoyed this museum so much. It was right down the road from where I stayed. Only problem is you pay more money to enter if you're foreign. Everywhere in Kenya actually. Weird. 🙆🏾‍♀️🙆🏾‍♀️

  • A great place to learn about the history of our country and different cultures. The prices are very favourable for the much knowledge you gain. I would definitely recommend
