1.30 p.m — 3:00 p.m: Karen Blixen Museum
This museum was originally the home of Karen Blixen, who came to Kenya from Denmark in the early part of the century. The present museum site is at the heart of the larger coffee plantation that Blixen ran between 1914 and 1931. The Danish government donated the house and surrounding land to Kenya at independence, and it was restored by the Danish government and used during the filming of "Out of Africa," which immortalized Blixen's book of the same name. The museum was opened to the public in 1986, and much of the original furniture is on display. Combined with the beautifully landscaped gardens and the encompassing view of the Ngong Hills, the museum is a popular destination for international and local visitors.
Visiting the home of the pioneer coffee farmer, Karen Blixen, is a short but fascinating tour. Preserved as a museum, it provides an opportunity to step back in time and gain insight into the remarkable life of this woman made famous in "Out of Africa." The beautifully landscaped gardens offer views of the Ngong Hills and make for a lovely stroll.
The Karen Blixen museum is one of several fascinating regional museums and archaeological and prehistoric sites managed by the National Museums of Kenya. It remains an immensely popular tourist attraction, with the same allure that made Blixen dream of Africa.
