Karen Blixen Museum.

Located 10km from the city centre, the Museum belongs to a different time period in the history of Kenya. Its history dates back to 1914, during the First World War, with the arrival of Karen Blixen from Denmark.

After her departure in 1931, the suburbs retained the commemorative home of Karen. The farm house gained international fame with the release of the movie ˜Out of Africa" an Oscar winning film based on Karen's autobiography by the same title.
