The Kitale Museum

The Kitale Museum 1

Founded on the collection of butterflies, birds and ethnographic memorabilia left to the nation in 1967 by the late Lieutenant Colonel Stoneham, this museum has an interesting range of ethnographic displays of the Pokot, Akamba, Marakwet and Turkana people. The outdoor exhibits include some traditional tribal homesteads and a collection of snakes, tortoises, and crocodiles with a small nature trail that leads through some not-quite-virgin rainforest at the back of the museum. It’s a good place for birdwatching and there are lots of colobus monkeys.
