Museum & Exhibition
Situated in the grounds of the former prison where "the Kapenguria Six" were imprisoned before independence. The museum itself displays weapons, implements and photos of bygone ages.
A nice, modern building for a rather sparse display of Tugen artefacts and implements in display cases. In the grounds outside, there is quite a large collection of tortoises of various sizes and shapes.
Many of the exhibits in this multifarious.collection are from private collections dating from the Colonial Period. The grounds of the museum contain displays of traditional houses and a variety of reptiles, including snakes.
KOITALEL ARAP SAMOEI MUSEUM
The Arap Samoei site is primarily a memorial and mausoleum. Its role as a museum is small and incidental, consisting of a small collection of weapons and utensils. The only rather special exhibit is the display of Koitalel's 3 ceremonial sticks of offce as the paramount chief of the Nandi
The museum building is actually the old colonial District Commissioners office --- dating from the early 1930s. It has some interesting photos of the British Queen mother's visit to the area in 1959. All the artefacts on display are products of the former life and culture of the Keiyo people.
TREASURES MUSEUM (KITALE)
It really is a treasure trove of items produced by the Karamajong culture; --- a tribe of the semi-arid regions in the NE of Uganda. In many ways they are identical / similar to those of the Turkana tribe ---- their kin, neighbours, and often adversaries, in NW Kenya.
Because of its unique specialisation, it is rarely visited.
