      Top Tips

      If you’re on a budget, make sure you pay in the local currency as the USD/TZS conversions don’t match up.
      You could try your luck at getting in for two-for-one (if you’re with a friend). It worked for us!
      Do make sure you head upstairs as some of the better exhibits -many of them ivory, sadly – are up there.
      If you need the toilet, you might want to go elsewhere. There are, however, some battered classic cars beside the toilets that you might want to check out – though who knows if they are exhibits or not!

                      Top Tips

                      Come here mainly for this building’s ornate and well-maintained façade.
                      It’s free of charge to enter the building if you want to have a look around, but don’t expect to find much more than a few small business and souvenir shops.
                      This seems to be a popular spot for local touts, so do be a little on your guard when outside the building (and around the in general).

                              If you’re in the area, do take the opportunity to visit the and .
                              The Floating Restaurant (which doesn’t float at all) in the middle of the park is one of the better spots in for an evening beer.
