The Kariandusi Museum is a great place to learn about the history of Kenya. The museum is small but has a lot of information about the country's past. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The museum is definitely worth a visit if you're interested in learning about Kenya's history. The museum has a wide variety of displays that cover different aspects of Kenyan history. I particularly enjoyed the section on the country's pre-colonial history. This was very informative and gave me a better understanding of the country's past. I also found the section on the Kenyan independence movement to be very interesting.

The usual run down, poorly maintained, no-receipt kind of place, typical for these kind of venues that are not run by a private company but still worth a visit because of its fascinating artefacts, plus it's near the main road.

The guide was knowledgeable and able to answer questions. The site has a huge number of stone tools and interesting rock formations. It's a pity that more people don't visit and support the museum initiative.

The guide was very good and the paths were easy in the heat. Sorry so few people both local and tourists go. Better signage and publicity in hotels would help.

One of the best archaeological attractions I have been to in East Africa. The preserved early man's tools are just awesome. But I think the site is a little under sold. If you are in to pre-historic sites,this one site you must visit while in Kenya.

Kariandusi is a very interesting archeological site, located near lake Elementaita. You will see a vast array of stone tools, situated as discovered during the course of exploration and excavation by Louis Leakey. The guide is very knowledgeable, and the walk to the two different sites gives you a good feel for the area as it was in prehistoric times, even if things have likely shifted a bit over time. The landscape is lovely with views of the lake and Rift Valley. Well worth the visit.

This was a really fascinating archaeological dig, Richard Leakey excavated stone tools here. The resident Archaeologist is a pleasure to meet, we thoroughly enjoyed out visit. Highly recommended for families and anyone interested in Anthrologoy, Archaeology and Evolution.
