See a variety of Kenyan arts, both traditional and modern at Nairobi Gallery, a historic building housing various private collections. Art by foreign and domestic artists features sculpture, paintings, photographs, and traditional crafts from many parts of Africa. Built in 1913 as the Provincial Commissioner's Office, the building stands at the zero point from which all distances in Kenya are measured. Don't miss the gallery's acclaimed Murumbi collection of ancient sculptures, paintings, and artifacts showing the evolution of African arts and their contacts with other civilizations.

Nairobi Gallery reviews
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.
