Traditional Life at the Village Museum

Experience Traditional Life at the Village Museum: A 20-minute drive northwest of the city center takes you to the Village Museum, an open-air re-creation of the traditional homes of Tanzania. The site is spread across 15 acres and gives you the chance to explore more than a dozen different types of ethnic homestead, all with authentic furnishings. 

The huts are surrounded by indigenous crops and occupied by costumed craftsmen who demonstrate traditional weaving, carving and pottery skills — all of which makes for an interactive experience that’s especially popular with kids. If you’re lucky, you may catch the daily tribal dance and drumming performance for an additional Tsh2000. Regular admission is priced at Tsh6500 per adult.

This open-air museum features a collection of authentically constructed dwellings illustrating traditional life in various parts of Tanzania. Each house is furnished with typical items and surrounded by small plots of crops, while ‘villagers’ demonstrate traditional skills such as weaving, pottery and carving. Traditional tribal dance performances also take place daily, whenever there is sufficient demand.

The museum is 9km north of the city centre; Mwenge dalla-dallas run there from New Posta transport stand (Tsh400, 45 minutes). Get off at ‘Makumbusho’; the museum is across the street.
