Karen Blicksen Museum

The Karen Blixen museum is one of a number of very interesting regional museums and archeological and prehistoric sites of the National Museums of Kenya. Once part of a farm at the foot of the Ngong Hills, Karen Blixen lived there between 1917 and 1931. Since then the house was purchased by the Danish government and given as an independence gift to the Kenyan government. The museum continues to be an immensely popular tourist attraction thanks to the movie “Out of Africa”.
