Dubbed the flagship institute of the NMK (National Museums of Kenya), Nairobi's National Museum is an amalgam of cultural, artistic and natural history exhibits running the gamut from giant elephant skeletons to works of contemporary sculpture. The fact that the museum was constructed in 1929 is highlighted by signs of wear and some rather aged displays (i.e. the optional "snake park"), though to its credit there have been several renovations performed on the structure over the years in an ongoing attempt to keep it up to international standards. Overall, for those museum aficionados looking to discover a little more about both the natural and cultural history of this incredible nation, you won't find a better alternative.
