The Judiciary Museum

 

 

 

Carvings of the eight previous Chief Justices who have served in Kenya, on display at the Judiciary Museum of Kenya.

The Judiciary Museum of Kenya opened its doors to the public in June 2016. The facility located in the Eastern wing of the Supreme Court Building basement, and one of its kind in East Africa and beyond, showcases the rich history of the Judiciary. It features key documents and objects of great judicial heritage value.

The museum was inspired by the need to open up the Judiciary to the public, in line with Pillar 1 of the Judiciary Transformation Framework on People-Centredness and Public Engagement.

The facility will enhance public understanding and appreciation of the evolution of legal and judicial institutions in Kenya. The project was implemented in partnership with the National Museums of Kenya (NMK) over three years.
