Kapenguria Museum.
Kapenguria museum well know as Kapenguria Six, is rich in history of this nation. It represents the struggle that the country went through to gain its independence.
In 1952, the founding fathers of this nation; Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Bildad Kaggia, Kung'u Karumba, Fred Kubai, Paul Ngei, and Achieng' Oneko were detained, tried and imprisoned thereafter in Northern Kenya. When here, you will find cells where the nationalists were held, ethnographic galleries and the Pokot homestead which provide the foundation of this museum.
There are also displays of books and documents in a memorial library in honor of the six nationalists. Exhibits of the pre-colonial era, slavery and the struggle for independence can also be found here.
The establishment of this museum is credited to Mrs Anny Mulder, an anthropologist who carried out research among the Pokot people. If you love history, this is a place to visit.
