  • Stopped in to take a look at the Murumbi collection and so some really nice art work and artifacts...... Beautiful bits and pieces of Africa's rich history. Can't wait to see the next exhibit
  • Quite small and expansive for what it has to offer but still worth a visit if you are in the area. If you have a choice I would definitely recommend to see the National Museum of Nairobi instead.
  • I liked it so much. The history unrolls pretty well and you get to see most of the things you read about.
  • This gallery is amazing with so much history and information about various art pieces from different countries in Africa. From garments, jewelry, head regalia, kitchenware, furniture and sculptures. It costs Kshs. 150 to gain access, staff are pleasant and there’s a coffee shop with the compound with great coffee where one can just relax. Guided tours are free too. They do art showcases every 3 months. There’s a room dedicated to Joseph Murumbi, who was Kenya’s Second Vice President and art enthusiast. The room showcases different art pieces that used to be in his home when he was alive.
  • Great place to learn more about African artifact. Great place to spend time when bored in town!
