Kenya Railway Museum

Located off Uhuru Highway in the city centre, represents the historical growth of Kenya through the construction of the rail way line from Mombasa to Kisumu. The museum consists of the main gallery (collection of smaller items) the museum resource centre (library and photo graphic section), the auditorium, and the outdoor collection of steam engines built at the turn of the century. The carriages are full of history photographs and relics from the time when railway construction workers first arrived in Nairobi. Two steam locomotives have been restored to working order and can be seen in the railway workshop near the museum .Also on display is the carriage used during the hunt for the man-eating lions of Tsavo. A visit to the railway Museum is a fascinating encounter with the story of Nairobi humble beginnings.
