Kisumu Museum is still being renovated, but a visit for an hour is well worth. It displays a variety of things from around the lake. A big exhibit about Luo-life. Adjoined snake park is also interesting.
There's not a ton of classic tourist attritions in Kisimu. My wife and I headed to the Kisimu Museum hoping to learn a bit more about the area and it's people. While we learned a couple of fun facts, the museum is limited, poorly maintained and hard to follow. There are a few different sections of the museum that don't... 更多
You can see the history of Kenya in an old fashion way. The aquarium is weird but they have also snakes, turtles and crocodiles. You can see how they lived 100 years ago but be aware of the guys in 'traditional' costums!
Compared to Western museums, it is bare bones. Their aquarium isn't the best but does have fish specimen from the very close Victoria Lake.

The museum is always a nice place to have some quiet time...the snakes are quite an interesting watch. The luo homestead is a bit confusing as the structures are not in line with the aid board at the entrance. The art gallery should also be revived. If that happens, it will make it my best place to visit in Kisumu!
This institution could had been named as a local interest section. The exhibits aren't very interesting, the natural history section is a massive disappointment. The saving grace is that it is not expensive and if you just want to kill time then a visit here is OK,. I wish they had a Speciality traditional Luo restaurant on premises. I reccommend... 更多
Every time I have visited the museum (other than during wedding occasions), the place is usually pretty slow and boring I must admit. The lawns are not tended as well as they could be, and the guide is missing. But there is some great stuff to see there!
