Beautiful art. Calm scenery with the perfect hideout coffee shop. Thats where one should go for a cup of coffee coupled with a good book. Once finished, take a tour of the gallery and lose yourself in African history.
There's something super enchanting about this place. I loved it
Nice quiet place in town next to Nyayo House.
The center of Nairobi is informative. Great collection of Murumbi artefacts
At the junction of Kenyatta Avenue and Uhuru highway is this breathtaking monument, built in 1913 by the British colonial government and designed by government architect Rand Overy. The building is a display of Victorian Architecture and was used for Native affairs. In the post colonial era it has played a major role as provincial administration offices before the construction of Nyayo house that is adjacent sky scraper. The building now houses unique Pan African cultural collection of Kenya 's second vice president Joseph Murumbi.
It's a gallery but more like a museum on art pieces&art crafts from all around africa.But i really enjoyed. There is nice cafe inside the compound.
I was particularly mesmerised by Murumbi's furniture and jewellery collection. There is also peculiar yet interesting stuff like a gourd made from a camel's stomach! I was given a tour by a really knowledgeable guide. I'd recommend the gallery for visits.
Well worth a trip to this centrally located spot you've probably driven past 100 times. Essentially a potion of Joseph Murrumbis vast personal collection it offers a glimpse into the early post-independence African art world. Read a bit on Murumbi and Alan Donovan before you go. Beautiful, fascinating...
I loved it....so much history and art to see in one small place. And it's so affordable.
Be sure to visit. Nice collections
