Uganda Museum

A display of Uganda's cultural heritage where one can see ethnological and natural-historical exhibitions. It is a vivid reminder of the country's colourful past. One of its most interesting features is the collection of traditional musical instruments, which one is free to play.

The Uganda Museum (founded in 1908) in Kampala has exhibits of traditional culture, archaeology, history, science, and natural history. It regularly presents performances of traditional music. Makerere University's main library in Kampala has a general collection, which is the largest in Uganda. The most important specialized collections, all in Kampala, are found in the Albert Cook Library at Makerere Medical School (at Makerere University), the Institute of Teacher Education, the Uganda Polytechnic Kyambogo (formerly Uganda Technical College), the Makerere Institute of Social Research, and the Cabinet Office.

The Uganda Museum is situated five kilometers away from the Kampala city centre on plot 5 Kira road. When coming from Kampala, pass through Wandegeya trading centre and by Mulago hospital. Just before Kamwokya Town is a large sign post reading Uganda Museum. BBC
