Built in 1913 as the Provincial Commissioner's Office, the building stands at the zero point from which all distances in Kenya are measured.

  • Located on the outskirts of Nairobi CBD, this place is great for people looking to see some unique historical artefacts.  more »
  • Housed in a former (Colonial) government office/ private home this personal collection of a Kenyan official (pictured with Ladybird Johnson in a photo) packs a wallop. Practically across the street.....  more »
  • Stopped in to take a look at the Murumbi collection and so some really nice art work and artifacts...... Beautiful bits and pieces of Africa's rich history. Can't wait to see the next exhibit
  • Quite small and expansive for what it has to offer but still worth a visit if you are in the area. If you have a choice I would definitely recommend to see the National Museum of Nairobi instead.
