Great place to buy some art and souvenirs. The building is shaped as a shield and sword in its design to symbolise the heritage of the Masai people. Most of the art is individually made from one single ebony wood tree which adds to the immense detail and effort they consist of. There are some statues outside the building allowing photos to be taken. You may also enjoy a refreshing beverage at the cafe. Ask for a mango and banana shake, it was amazing!
Fantastic place for tourists. The entry to gallery is free and there are lots of souvenir shops too. Inside the gallery, you find African heritage, beautiful arts, woooden sculpture, masks, etc. It is possible to buy some arts too.
