Kapenguria town has a rich historical background. The Kapenguria museum was opened to the public in 1993 and it contains the historical exhibits of the prisons where the six political prisoners arrested during colonial times were held. They were famously referred to as the Kapenguria 6. Among the prisoners included Kenya’s founding father and first president Mzee Jomo Kenyatta. Apart from the hero cells, the museum also displays an art gallery. The gallery displays art that seeks to show the way of life of the indigenous communities living in West Pokot. This a plus for art lovers. The museum also has a library where you can relax and gain some historical knowledge about Kenya.
