Arusha National History Museum

Arusha National History Museum

This museum inside the old German boma (fortified compound), completed in 1900, has three parts. The best is the wing dedicated to human evolution, since much of what we know about the topic came from fossils unearthed in Tanzania. There are also displays on insects, the history of Arusha during the German colonial era, and wildlife photos and mounts.

One of the three buildings are for wildlife, the other for history of the region’s events and the third for archaeological history. The museum is part of the national museums of Tanzania, that also includes the Dar es Salaam museum, Sukuma museum, Mwalimu Nyerere museum and the Makumbusho village museum.Some of the things that can be found at the museum include:

  • #1. Boma Natural history museum Arusha, building for the history of Arusha at the front

  • #3. Boma Natural history museum Arusha, wildlife building
  • #4. Boma Natural history museum Arusha, history of Arusha (centre) and wildlife (left partly off view) buildings
