National Museum of Kenya

A museum containing the Leakey family discoveries at Tanzania’s Olduvai Gorge and Koobi Fora in northern Kenya. Also a range of weapons, ornaments and headdresses of various Kenyan tribes—a good introduction to the country and its peoples. Within the museum grounds is a snake park with live East African snakes: puff adders, black and green mambas and other reptiles. An aquarium with marine and freshwater fish recently opened on the grounds.

Cost: 40 US$
