Nairobi National Museum Tours

star-3.5
4 Reviews
Nairobi National Museum
With a massive permanent collection that combines history, culture, and artwork, the Nairobi National Museum is a must for travelers interested in Kenya’s rich heritage. Artifacts are displayed across two floors, and a nature trail winds through the surrounding grounds, a botanical garden, and collections of outdoor sculptures.
 
The Basics
In addition to the destination-worthy permanent collection, the Nairobi National Museum features a rotating list of temporary exhibitions. Since the museum is a short drive from downtown Nairobi, many city tours feature it as an included stop along with sites such as the Nairobi Railway Museum, government buildings, and Snake Park right next door.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Kid-friendly exhibits make this a great activity for families.
  • If you’re visiting nearby Snake Park, combination tickets are a cost-effective option.
  • It’s possible to visit the museum on your own, but exploring with a guide ensures you don’t miss the museum highlights.
 
How to Get There
The Nairobi National Museum is located on Museum Hill, roughly a 10-minute drive from downtown Nairobi. It can be reached by taxi or public transit; local minibuses called matatus stop on Kipande Road just outside the museum. Many group tours offer the convenience of pickup and drop-off at your accommodations. 
 
When to Get There
Open daily from 8:30am to 5:30pm, the Nairobi National Museum tends to be least busy in the morning hours. Since Fridays are popular with large school groups, it’s worth visiting on a different day if you’d prefer an uncrowded experience—or you can just enjoy the chance to explore the museum with young locals.
 
Where to Eat Near Nairobi National Museum
Located on the grounds of Nairobi National Museum, Vogue Café is a convenient option with an outdoor terrace that’s tempting on sunny days. If you’d prefer to bring your own food, there is ample space in the Nairobi National Museum gardens to enjoy a picnic after you explore the exhibits.

Day Tour Nairobi National museum and Karen blixen museum

Day Tour Nairobi National museum and Karen blixen museum

At the foot of the Ngong Hills, 10 kilometres from Nairobi, lies a 19th century bungalow named after renowned Danish author Karen Blixen. The building houses the Karen Blixen Museum. With its serene environment, lush green lawns and cool breeze, one cannot help but fall for its charm and promise of tranquillity. Karen Blixen and her husband Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke bought the house built in 1912 by Swedish engineer Ake Sjogren. It served as a farmhouse on their 4,500-acre farm. Ms Blixen came to Kenya in 1914 to get married to Baron Fincke. The couple grew coffee, though it was not as profitable as they had expected. Seven years later, Blixen’s marriage turned sour and she and her husband divorced in 1921, leaving her the sole manager of their farm. She later fell in love with a big-game hunter named Denys Finch Hatton.
