The guided tour through the hall of mammals, cradle of mankind, art galleries, history of Kenya, life cycles and the many bird species was educative.
The most fun part is the snake park where there are life snakes, crocodiles, monitor lizards,tortoise and a beautiful aquarium.
We paid$2 pp to have a guide take us around the museum which was interesting to see the tools and how they lived. the snake park was very sad the enclosure was very minimalist, not natural the snakes were just living.
It was a great visit with kids. Loved the birds collection with sizes starting
from a few inches ranging upto few feet. Also the historic collection of Kenya and freedom fight segment is worth visiting
It is a nice opportunity to know more about Africa history specially culture, food, animals and political history. I pretty recommender a guide visit, is more interesting and they can solve all your doubts.

My visit to this location was worth every second spent. The artistic curation were carefully done. The location of this monument is well situated and the staff seemed reluctant to assist, however i thoroughly enjoyed the tour
