Whenever I visit a new country, I always make a mental note to visit the National Museum to get an idea of the history and culture of the country. Nairobi was no difference.
The Nairobi nation Museum was initiated in 1910 by a group of enthusiastic naturalists under the then East Africa and Uganda Natural History Society [currently the East African Natural History Society (EANHS)], who needed a place to keep and preserve their collections of various specimens.
The artworks and materials used in the fabrication of outdoor sculptures, the landscaping and the botanic gardens, link to the four pillars of Kenya’s national heritage i.e. nature, culture, history and contemporary art.
Attractions include the art gallery, temporary exhibitions, botanical gardens and nature trail, and shopping and dining facilities.
Below are a few pictures from the museum... enjoy.
