2. Kapenguria Museum

It was opened in 1993 to preserve the history of the struggle for Kenya’s independence. It is where the six most influential leaders in the struggle for independence were detained. The six leaders were Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Kungu Karumba, Fred Kubai, Paul Ngei, Bildad Kaggia, and Achieng Oneko. The museum features displays of books and documents in a memorial library in honor of the heroes who fought for the independence of Kenya.
