Karen Blixen Museum

Against the backdrop of the Ngong Hills, the Karen Blixen Museum sits in the cosy suburb, telling the tale of Karen Blixen. The Karen Blixen Museum was once the centrepiece of a farm at the foot of the Ngong Hills owned by Danish Author Karen and her Swedish Husband. Located 10 km from the city centre, the museum belongs to a different period in the history of Kenya and later gained international acclaim with the release of the movie ‘Out of Africa’, an Oscar winning film based on Karen’s autobiography by the same title. The museum house is surrounded by a tranquil garden, indigenous forest and a nature trail. The museum is also used frequently for weddings, events and team-building activities. The museum also supports the local art scene with the creation of Karen’s Art Corner.
