About Nairobi National Museum, Nairobi

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.

Nairobi National Museum, Nairobi Reviews

  • National cultural resource. Snake park was also great experience and it's within the museum. You can carry your snacks as if our on picnic or choose to eat from the hotels within. Children will also enjoy it, and there's lots of learning for all ages as well as adults. Visit the National MUSEUM

  • Best museum in the region. Learn about history of mankind, birds and other wild animals. Also has snake park

  • If you don’t like seeing snakes there’s another section that allows you to see other animals. It also has great restaurant where one can eat and relax after the museum tour. One can walk to the museum from the Nairobi CBD.

  • A must visit location if you are in Nairobi. Whether you are a local or a tourist, there is always something worth learning here. I particularly like their botanical garden space. It is surprisingly peaceful even though the museum is right next to the highway.

  • This is a heritage site with a lot of informative and historic items. It is suitable for both locals and foreigners who desire to see Kenya and learn all at once. The full entrance package provides access to the Museum and also the snake park.
