Well, I paid USD10-20 to get to here and back.

I'm sad to say this place is in a sorry state. There was also entrance fees.

The only interested aspect was that there are mini performances but you'd have to pay separately for this.

My son had an educational experience of how the tribals live/cook dress up. Indigenous methods of approach to the living style and utilizing the natural means of sustenance. we had some time before we left for the airport and this was the best suited place to spend time.

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
