The building isn't much to look at, but the exhibits are well done. It's a real walk through the political, cultural, and economic history of Uganda. My guide, Ronald, was extremely knowledgeable. He put up with my numerous questions and was able to answer everything....More

Most disappointing. So dirty and disorganized. I do not understand why at least they do not keep it clean.

The Uganda museum is quite a place to visit. However, more lighting ought be done in it. It was good a time getting some history about the kingdoms, and their different perceptions of life.
