The museum has a collection of huts from different areas of Tanzania, although all look more or less the same. There are also local dances organised for additional price.

Found this to be very interesting - provides some interesting history into the various ethnic groups and tribes that have and do still live in traditional villages throughout Tanzania

You get to see all tribes' huts in one place and can even go inside to explore how they live, where they cook and where they sleep. There is a very reasonable extra cost to watch traditional dance and you can also donate small amount of money for he dancers (this is optional and you are not forced to). 1-2 hours should be enough to finish the tour and watch the dances.

If you want to see all the huts/houses, all the tribes are living in, this is the best place to see all at once. The band who plays music and dances were also pleasant. It was interesting to join in for a dance with them

Through living in Dar es salaam and sometimes up country I did not get a time to visit that place as I did in July 2016. It is where you get a history of Tanzanian culture, how people live, types of food taken, 120 type of culture but living in one roof, sometimes you can found traditional music etc. Village Museum, established in 1996, is an open-air ethnographical museum located in the outskirts of Dar es Salaam, on the road to Mwenge and Bagamoyo, that area famous known as Makumbusho.
