Karen Blixen Museum, Nairobi Overview

A popular spot right on the foothills of Ngong Valleys, Karen Blixen Museum was once a house owned by Danish Author Karen and her Husband, Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke. Just about ten kilometres from the main downtown, the Museum has all the collections symbolizing the remarkable Kenyan history of a different era. The farmhouse became extremely famous with the release of the movie 'Out of Africa' an Oscar winning film based on Karen's life.

Karen who used to run a coffee plantation in her house, is still reminisced by the locals residing near the museum. The historic landmark is a delight to the visitors from all across the world. With the movie out, people now can easily relate the museum with the history behind it. Tourists often go a full 360 degree browsing through the house which is a small yet comfortable consisting of her dining room decorated with the furniture that was apparently owned by her at the time. There is also a small museum shop which sells some of the 'Out of Africa' souvenirs, as well as handicrafts. Beside the museum, there are also huge gardens that give a spectacular view of the Ngong Hills to its visitors.
