The National Museum of Dar es Salaam is one of the 5 museums in the country that form the National Museum of Tanzania. It is a great place to start your exploration of both the capital and the country, as the museum focuses on the history of this part of Africa as well as all humankind.
At its inauguration, the museum was dedicated to the memory of the British King George V, who was the official head of state of Tanganyika - the British mandate that precedes today's Tanzania. Little remains of the original exhibition dedicated to the king; the most important exhibits now include a presidential Rolls Royce and a collection of millions of years old fossils. The museum also covers the long period that the Persian city states played a prominent role along the coast East Africa.
