  • Visit to the Museum was really amazing, it is well equipped, i saw alot and learnt alot about the country. it's worth it.  more »
  • I love the scenery and the beauty of the Uganda culture. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Its well organised  more »
  • This place needs more face lift. But it's very interesting especially the cars for the past presidents. I suggest these cars be cleaned and maintained to stay looking good.
  • It has information, but could have more. Facilities are nice, but doesn't seem maintained, especially for being Uganda's Museum. A good place to get your feet wet and learn some of the culture, history, and geography of Uganda.
