Swahili House Museum

Swahili House Museum Review

This beautifully restored Swahili merchant's house has original period furniture. Notice the traditional beds with woven bases of rope, and the finely carved Kalinda screen in the main room. There's a garden full of flowering tropical shrubs and trees and the original well.
