39th Know Kenya More 2011

Learn More; Know More; Know Kenya

Since 1971 the Know Kenya More! (formerly: Know Kenya Course) has been organized by the Kenya Museum Society as the main fundraising event to support projects of the National Museums of Kenya, providing valuable income for museums and pre-historic sites around the country.   All proceeds of the 39th course will go to support various projects at the National Museums of Kenya.

The course is an action-packed week designed to help all who live in and love Kenya to discover many of the nation’s hidden treasures.  Over a five-day period we are offering a series of 15 programmes including  morning lectures about Kenya’s history, natural history, conservation, modern-day issues, and popular culture. In the afternoon, the programme also includes guided tours through the only museum in East Africa adapted to 21st–century standards and Kenyan films.
