    Location of Mwalimu Nyerere museum

    The Mwalimu Nyerere museum is located in Butiama district of the North Western region of Tanzania called Mara. The area is quite small, in fact its population is small enough to be village, but it was upgraded to a district in honor of Nyerere.

    It also lies in the middle of a community that is partly made up of people that have lived under the rule of both chief Nyerere, and his son J.K Nyerere and if you are lucky you may get to talk to one of them (villagers) for a more up close tale of the times.

    For more information on the location of the museum, please see the map below (click to start).

    How to get thereBy any type of vehicle, driving there from Mwanza, Musoma of even fort Ikoma gate of Serengeti national park. It is about a 4 hour drive from Mwanza, using a private vehicle, though you could also use one of the passenger buses from Arusha (through Ngorongoro and Serengeti) or ones from Mwanza or Musoma.

    If coming from Mwanza, then you would have to get off at the small town of Kukirango and take one of the minibus to Butiama.
