The Uganda Museum is located in Kampala, Uganda. It displays and exhibits ethnological, natural-historical and traditional life collections of Uganda's cultural heritage. It was founded in 1908, after Governor George Wilson called for "all articles of interest" on Uganda to be procured. Among the collections in the Uganda Museum are playable musical instruments, hunting equipment, weaponry, archaeology and entomology.

Do you want to see the first car to be brought in Uganda, then you need to pay tthe Uganda museum a visit. Good canteen with a wife variety of Ugandan food. Taxi services are just a call away. The museum has a guide thus you don't have to worry about getting lost in the museum
It was the first time I had visited Africa. I really liked the museum. The guide was wonderful and brought life to the artifacts. my particular interest was to learn about the origins of Western music and the pentatonic scale. The guide surprised me by playing a one-string instrument while someone else played the African drums. it was a wonderful experience that I will remember.
This one of the best places I visited during my stay in Kampala, it is a good place to discover about the history of Kampala and Uganda as a whole. The staff here are welcoming. Parking here is free and the museum can be seen from a moving traffic. I would recommend anyone to visit this location while in Kampala
A basic but wonderful museum. Don't go with western expectations. Go with an open mind and heart and you won't be disappointed.
Had a wonderful time at the museum. Loved the new section highlights milk productiion and processing. However I wish there is more on the political history of Uganda.
The museum is still an icon. The environment and landscaping needs a lot of care and work as the public sitting benches are not welcoming. The library there is usable - great books for all ages, functional washrooms and helpful receptionist. Make that visit because the antiques are still there.
Very informative. Reflects Uganda's rich history, past and present. Good to see an oil and gas section. Quite up to date!
SO MANY JIGABOOS. WHERE ARE THE GOOD OLD DAYS OF THE SLAVES. DO YOU REALIZE HOW MANY PLANTATIONS YOU COULD MAKE WITH ALL THESE BLACKS
I liked the place especially the history about different places of the country and milk. I don't think any one visitor has ever been disappointed.
This is pretty much the only museum in Kampala. I urge everyone to visit to see how underfunded it is and to give the place as much revenue as possible. It needs it. I have been visiting for nearly 5 years and not much has changed. They still even have the policy of charging extra for taking photos. Only in Uganda. I remember a policeman trying to stop me taking pictures of the bus park outside the museum. No wonder tourism is not generating the massive potential $$$ it could.
It's an average museum which showcases key aspects of Ugandan culture. A highlight of the visit was seeing the multiple varieties of Ugandan huts which are accessible once you are inside the museum. If you are coming to this museum to be blown over by exquisite artefacts then you are going to be disappointed. A guide is able to provide you a tour and a mini history lesson which is recommended if you want things to be kept interesting. You will also get charged nearly double the entrance fee if you're carrying a camera and intend to take pictures.
This place is I think the only Museum we have in the country so I believe it has a vast amount of historical matter within. It's got skeletons and skulls and statues. Great parking so if you're admiring history, your car is on safe hands of the security guards!
It has a great deal of Uganda's history. Having a guided tour through the galleries enriches one with the history and culture of Uganda. Idd Amin's car is just one of the many antiques in there. Enjoy your visit but make sure you get a guide
Very multicultural gatherings. You can literally meet people from all over the world in just one event
