Karen Blixen Museum

Karen Blixen Museum is located on the outskirts of Nairobi on Karen Road. Its history dates back to 1914, during the First World War, with the arrival of Karen Blixen from Denmark.

At the foot of Ngong Hills, Karen Blixen established herself as coffee farmer. After her departure in 1931, the suburbs retained the commemorative home of Karen. The Danish government donated the house, and the surrounding land to Kenya after independence.

The house was restored by the Danish government, and was used during the filming of "Out of Africa" which immortalized Karen Blixen's book by the same name. The museum was opened to the public in 1986.
