Bagamoyo Museum offers a well-informed glimpse into the history of Africa's east coast. Learn about the cultural traditions of the tribes that inhabit this region, as well as the history of slavery that shook this area to its core. The museum's collection of artifacts, photos, and documents tells the story of these people. For something a little different, head to the nearby Catholic church, where you can admire the stone building and possibly attend a service.
