The Shujaa Stories Exhibitions

Let's take you on a journey of discovery of over 60 shujaas who made Kenya's pre-independece history from the 1400s to the 1800s. This is our way of preserving cultural heritage, collective pride and partriotism.

The travelling Exhibition was first launched on 9th November 2018 at the Nairobi National Museum in Kenya. The second part is a virtual exhibition that is among the most engaging and appealing in the country. It was launched on Google Arts and Culture on the 19th of October 2020. A physical exhibition was later held on the 11th of December 2021 at the Nairobi National Museum.
