Considering the significance of fossils discovered here, it would be crazy not to visit the place. Just looking around and imagining our ancestors roaming here a few million years ago is worth it.

New museum is excellent, even if it contains many replicas. The lecture/lunch amphitheater offers great views over the gorge.

The museum, opened nine months ago, provides some very interesting displays about this important palaeo- anthropological site. We had an informative talk, after we went through the museum, by one of the guide lecturers here, Suzanne, which enhanced our understanding of the research done and being done here. Well worth a visit .

Fascinating place to learn about the discovery of human evolution and ecology of this landscape.

You’re introduced to a lecture and background about the place before entering the museum.

The senior lecturer Masaki was fabulous at explaining the history and answering questions.

It’s a very spectacular place to see, if your package allows it, recommend going down to the gorge to see the shifting sand. Very impressive.

Interesting place with a small museum. More like a pit stop to Serengeti. You don't need too much time here. 15 mins or half hour is enough.

This is a little way away from the Serengeti National park. Its a little pricey as far as admission is concerned, but if you are into anthropology ad prehistory, you will find it quite interesting. Great view of the Gorge itself from the info center, and the exhibits are quite informative.
