A national museum where you will see some of the earliest inventions in the coast. The structure was build by early explorers and the design and facilities reflects their ideas. You may need a cab or get in touch to be provided with a guide.

The Fort, built by the Portuguese in 1593-1596 to the designs of Giovanni Battista Cairati to protect the port of Mombasa, is one of the most outstanding and well preserved examples of 16th Portuguese military fortification and a landmark in the history of this type of construction.
