Lovely museum in the city. The beginnings of Africa, an exhibit of the Tribes of Africa by Joy Adamson, and also some of the artifacts from the Leaky's excavations.

We enjoyed our time at the national museum, particularly the snake exhibition. As museums go, the price was very reasonable at ksh600 per resident for a combined snake and museum ticket. We also found the restaurant to be reasonably priced too.

Unfortunately, our time was limited so we were unable to enjoy all that the museum had to offer. All of the staff were friendly and we were offered a guided tour. If we come back to Nairobi, we will be sure the visit the national museum again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the museum and had a great guide who was able to answer all of the questions that I bombarded him with as some of the cultural exhibits are wonderful and it was good to get the whole story of Kenya's past. Also the restaurant is worth a visit - beautiful food and very reasonable prices.

Well worth the time spent. Amazing displays covering history of Kenya, amazing bird display, amazing animals. Great contemporary art. And on top of it all a real experience walking from the city centre and dodging traffic to get there and back!

Initially I didn't want a guide but I'm so happy I had one along. The guide really helps to bring the exhibits to life and saves times as you don't have to read every plaque in the museum. It was also helpful to hear a locals perspective on many of the cultural displays. Don't forget to tip!
