Who were we? How did we get here? What can we learn from the journey? More interestingly, where are we going to be in 50 or 100 years?
The National Museum is one of the many great places to learn and ponder Kenya’s history
Now, I hate to admit it but, I’ve only recently came to appreciate the National Museum – as an adult, a place to visit when you have a couple of hours to disappear and want to see something interesting.
I like to walk around and examine everything, let my mind wander as I explore the different exhibits put together – the remarkably large lion I always imagine I would fit rather comfortably in if perchance I was devoured, or the amazing paintings depicting people from various tribes in their traditional regalia, marveling at the Turkana boy famed as the earliest specimen of the most complete early human skeleton ever found and of course for me the art exhibitions.
My trip to the National Museum got me thinking about interpretive possibilities; a look at what we know to be the past and what exciting predictions we have for the future. Perhaps my fascination is also built from trying to understand the nature of reality and the wonders of dimension theories, but that is a concept for another day.
