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.
