A Nairobi Tour will leave you, quite knowledgeable of Kenya’s History from the 1900s to date. It’s quite interesting to learn about several historical stories of the Nation’s capital. The railway museum is quite the backbone of who Nairobi is today. The Monuments too, have a story to tell, and then there are the streets, roads and avenues of Nairobi that too tell the nostalgic narrative of our beloved country. Finally, phrase one of my tour ends at the KICC, and the view from the top at the helipad brings to life all the day’s stories of this lovely city.
Have a peep on what we got to see at the Railway Museum
The Queen’s porcelain cups and plates were on display too. The Gold dinner service utensils were used on special royal occasions. Can you identify the Queen’s porcelain cups and plates?
Then the permanent way inspector’s Trolley bicycle! It was used to inspect the rail’s condition, quite some innovation for this era.
The tour would not be complete without viewing the Queens seats. Clearly taking the train was quite a royalty affair.
The Movie Out of Africa is represented here!
We finally depart the Railway Museum having learnt, had a day full of adventure and lots of historical narratives about the City of the Nairobi and the history of railway line right from inspection to date. It’s one of the many cheap things to do when in Nairobi. It cost only 200 shillings for citizens and 600 per person for non-residents. Read more on cheap day trip ideas here.
