A Guide To Nairobi Gallery
Nairobi Gallery was fondly referred to by the settler community as Hatches, Matches and Dispatches because of the births, marriages, and deaths that were recorded here. This museum holds temporary rotating exhibitions of local Kenyan crafts, school completion pieces, and votive objects from various tribal groups.
Located right in the heart of Nairobi City next to Nyayo House is The Nairobi Gallery. It is housed in the Old PC’s (provincial commissioner) office building. Built in 1913, it was referred to as ‘Hatches, Matches and Dispatches’ because of the births, marriages and deaths that were recorded here.
