The Permanent Museum and Exhibition in Lamu
A letter from Lamu (Kenya):
The NRAA opened the permanent museum and exhibition of records, archives and historical holdings related to the Omani presence in East Africa and the Omani influence in Lamu County after the improvement and restoration process, under the patronage of Her Excellency Peninah Malonza, Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Heritage of the Republic of Kenya, in the presence of His Excellency Dr. Hamad bin Mohammed Al Dhawyani, Chairman of the NRAA, a number of ministers, governors, ambassadors and a number of Omani dignitaries in Mombasa, Lamu and Malindi. This opening was carried out under the supervision and follow-up of the NRAA in coordination with the Sultanate’s embassy in Kenya, and in cooperation with the Kenyan Ministry of Tourism, Wildlife and Heritage. This museum was established within the framework of the efforts of the National Records and Archives Authority to introduce the cultural and historical aspects of Omanis and their role in the region. In fact, the museum is one of the archaeological and architectural monuments that are expected to play various cultural roles, through which it aims to confirm the Omani presence in Kenya, in addition to confirming the depth of historical relations between the two countries and consolidating noble Omani values that reflect Oman’s history, heritage and culture.
