Located at "point zero" directly in the heart of the capital, the Nairobi Gallery long stood as nothing more than the former Provincial Commissioner's office - a dusty and somewhat dubious reminder of those bygone years of British colonialism. Today, however, thanks to its repurposing under the National Museums of Kenya, this modest building plays home to some fantastic cultural exhibits, including the treasured African collection of Joseph Murumbi. Its colorful displays of artwork, sculpture, jewelry, etc. help to give visitors some well rounded insight into Kenyan culture throughout the years.
And seeing as the gallery is located directly beneath the infamous and towering Nyayo House, few are the people who can claim to have had a hard time finding it. For anyone interested in checking out both traditional and modern works of art from Kenya and beyond, consider this a stop worth making along your stroll through downtown.
