  • Unfortunately the museum is very run down, a lot of pieces missing, stuffed animals that look like puppets. It was still interesting going through though. The thing that disappointed me the most was that some of the traditional huts were closed without a reason being given.
  • This is a best place to visit in Uganda. If you haven't gone to this place, you may not know life in its fullest.
