Louis Leakey Auditorium

The Louis Leakey Auditorium was opened in 1977 to honor the life and work of Louis Seymour Bazey Leakey, a man who provided a quantum leap in our understanding of the origins of man through his works in East Africa.


The facility underwent a major rehabilitation in 2008 thanks to friends of the museum, a project that was spear headed by the Kenya Museum Society and funded by the Safaricom Foundation, resulting in a State of the Art facility with the best acoustics in East and Central Africa. The Auditorium has become Nairobi’s preferred venue for hosting a variety of events from Seminars, workshops to film shows, a favorite for performing artists. Our highly qualified staff are always available to give you exceptional customer service. Book your next event with us and experience the latest in technology with exceptionally efficient customer service and experience quality service with a unique touch of Kenya’s heritage.
