Treasures of Africa museum is like an oasis to the traveller in this eastern part of Kenya. The place lets the visitors witness the rich cultural artefacts, rural and ethnic utilities and colourful handiworks. A place worth visiting if someone is nearto Kitale and/or Eldoret

"A stitch in time" is what the owner and curator, John G. Wilson, called his collection, and he was right! Understanding that this is a personal collection of an Africa that is no longer there made a visit to the museum a must; getting a personal tour from the astounding 88-year old owner was the real treasure.
