Quite informative if you are researching dwellings in central Africa but I found it all rather tedious. Exhibits could be made more interesting and perhaps livened up a little as this is little more than a collection of different hut types in a central park

You can get into the skin of Tanzania, its people and its villages. Beautiful and serene. The tribal dance and music shows are a must watch, they are fantastic and mesmerizing. You cant find these anywhere else in the world. We attended a wedding here,...More

Make sure you get a guide to explain all the detail facts about the tribes. Make sure you have lunch there as it was beautiful And great value

the name is "village museum" by itself. its an open air museum that features dwellings that show traditional life of tanzanians, the skills n dances... Non-rainy weekdays are best to visit. Enjoy!
