The Nairobi Railway Art Gallery
The Nairobi Railway Art Gallery was established in January 2012 by the Railway Museums management in collaboration with ECAK (Educultural Artists Kenya).
It is among the five sections of the Nairobi Railway museum the other sections are the Main Gallery (collection of smaller items), the Museum Resource Center (library and photographic section), the auditorium and an outdoor collection of locomotives, coaches and wagons.

The gallery is open daily from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm except on Sundays. http://ecakgallery.kbo.co.ke/About+us
After a trip to the gallery one can always enjoy views of old locomotives in the outside section of the Railway Museum. I will soon be posting on the Railway museum, so keep in touch!
