Mau Mau Caves
The Mau Mau caves are located near Nanyuki in Mount Kenya National Park. These caves were used as a hide out by the Kenyan Freedom Fighters during the Mau Mau uprising of 1952 to 1960. The caves were declared a national monument in 2003 by the Museums of Kenya.
The museum was constructed in 1924 as a "Native Law Court" where customary cases were settled by the village elders. A few years after independence, the court was abandoned and it was later taken over by National Museums of Kenya in 1997. Today, it is a museum of the history of the Mau Mau freedom fighters, tools used during the colonial period and stories of what happened after Kenyan independence.
