0830hrs: Pick up from JKIA Airport or your accommodation in Nairobi.
Visit Nairobi National Museum which is located at the Museum Hill, approximately 10 min’s drive from the city centre. It is the flagship museum housing some of the most celebrated collections of history, culture and art from Kenya and East Africa. The museum aims to interpret heritage of Kenya to stimulate appreciation and learning.
The artworks, the materials used in the fabrication of outdoor sculptures, the landscaping and the botanic gardens, link to the three pillars of Kenya’s national heritage i.e. nature, culture and history.
To capture the feel of diversity and interactivity, there are mixed galleries to show the personality of the museum. Under the nature pillar, there are exhibitions for Human origins, Mammalian Radiation, Ecology of Kenya, Natural Diversity and Geology. The Culture exhibitions include Cycles of Life, Cultural Dynamism and Creativity.
A welcoming ambience of harmony between the galleries, the non – gallery spaces, the landscape and its entrances, make the visits more exciting.
Adjacent to the Museum is the snake park which is one of the National Museums of Kenya attractions.
On display are, cobras, puff adders, mambas and the large African-Rock python (non-poisonous) found only in Kenya.
Several species of crocodile found in Africa, the American alligator, fresh water terrapins and tortoises are also on display aquariums holding coral fish from the East African lakes and rivers are a main feature of the park.
Apart from the attraction, the snake park provided refuge and home for abandoned rescued and unwanted reptiles.
