Cultural Heritage really is the best place for purchases/gifts, experiencing African history and their coffee and food are great too! Everyone we take there love it! Everyone who works there is very helpful and there are multiple languages spoken.

Amazing art for view and purchase. You could easily spend half a day there. Had the privilege of meeting one of the local artist that sculptures the exterior cement creations. Harold was a very interesting and wise man to talk to

It is a must see collection of Tanzanian culture, art and heritage, just outside Arusha, on way to Manyara. The entry is free and one can purchase the articles.
