Nairobi Railway Museum

Kenya / Africa

The Nairobi Railway Museum is adjacent to the railway station.  Containing exhibits from the defunct East African Railways, it was opened in 1971 by East African Railways and Harbours Corporation.  It is operated by Kenya Railways.

The museum has maintained its connection with railroads.  This allows for the efficient movement of museum exhibits for maintenance and placing items in the collection.

Three operational steam locomotives are stored securely under cover within the main railway works.  Visitors must request an appointment to view them. They have not been used for several years.  One of the display locomotives, 301 (2301) was used in the 1985 film, Out of Africa.
