Discover the most interesting customs and cultures of the Ameru people at Meru Museum. The museum was the first stone building constructed in Meru in 1916 by the first colonial district commissioner E B Horne, who was posted to the area in 1908.Aspects of the cultural and diverse history of the Meru people are well illustrated by the numerous displays. Two rather unusual amenities of the Meru museum are a garden of indigenous medicinal shrubs and herbs together with a theatre. A compound of traditional huts has been constructed on the grounds, which are included in tours of the museum. An outdoor platform for dancing and musical programs along with sales kiosks complete the exterior construction.
