Great place, but could use some renovations and expansion of collections. The Technology section is missing, management could invite partners to grow this section.

If you want to learn about a piece of history of Uganda, this is the place to visit. Although it can be crowded as schools are almost always on fieldtrips but still a good way to start your lesson about Uganda.
