Situated about 20km from our hotel, the museum is a renovated colonial house on the road to Kaptumo. It is also a memorial site and a mausoleum. The statue of the great Nandi political and spiritual leader, Koitalel Arap Samoei, stands majestically in the compound. Standing tall in the compound are also two huge fig trees, one of which is believed to have grown where the hero was buried more than 100 years ago. Next to the museum are two grass-thatched huts or kot ab gaa, complete with Kalenjin regalia and names of the community’s main events.
