Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

One cannot help but notice the contrast between urban development within the City itself and the age-old East African culture still practiced in the out-skirting rural communities. The Makumbusho Village Museum is a unique museum where one can learn about the cultures of the many ethnic groups of Tanzania. This open-air museum displays a number of furnished houses from across Tanzania, offering visitors a depiction of life throughout this fascinating country. Traditional dance and music performances are offered to further enhance the visitors experience.
