A society is offering Kenyan families a chance to tour a farm and a local art gallery in a bid to raise funds for the National Museums of Kenya.
Organized by the Kenya Museum Society (KMS), the family outing is part of the group's monthly activities which help to raise money to support museums in Kenya.
The family outing will see both members and non-members of KMS pay a visit to Redhill Art Gallery in Kiambu for an exhibition by a Kenyan artist.
“We are trying to incorporate art into our activities so going to see Eltayeb Dawelbait's work fits in just perfectly,” said Dorothy Mkala who is organising the event.
After the the gallery visit, families will get to experience farm life in Ngecha village which is also in Kiambu.
Here families will be treated to a tour at Mlango Farm and learn how various types of various types of vegetables are grown.
“The children are also sure to enjoy the farm because of the spacious lawn for running around and they will also have a chance to feed farm animals,” noted Dorothy.
After the farm tour, families will be treated to a sumptous home cooked meal courtesy of the the farmhouse at Mango Farm.
The outing is not restricted to members of KMS only.
“Those who are not members can also come and even join the society for future events,” said Dorothy.
Apart from the family outing, every month KMS hold various other activities in which proceeds go towards museums in Kenya. These other activities are children's events, lectures, fim screenings and day outings.
“In every activity, we try to make it not only fun but also educational for instance with this month's art exhibition, we hope that more Kenyans can come to learn about our local art,” said Dorothy.
The price for the family outing is Sh2650 for children between four and eleven years and Sh3450 for adults. Children under four years will go for free. This fee is inclusive of transport to and from the venues. The pick-up and drop-off point will be at Nairobi National Museuma at 9.15am and 3pm respectively.
