Welcome to Makumbusho Village Museum

Makumbusho Village Museum

A popular tourist attraction, the Makumbusho Village Museum displays traditional Tanzanian traditional homes, representing 18 ethnic tribes. Visitors are taken on a tour through the homes, which include furnished huts, meeting places and cattle pens, and can view artists and craftsmen weaving, carving and painting. Traditional dances are held every Thursday and Sunday.

Information & Facts

Swahili and English are the official languages. Several indigenous languages are also spoken.

The official unit of currency is the Tanzanian shilling (TZS), divided into 100 cents. The tourism industry prices everything in US Dollars and they are the preferred unit of currency. Major currencies can be exchanged in the larger towns. Foreign exchange bureaux in the main towns usually offer a better rate on travellers cheques than do the banks. ATMs are available in major cities only. Major lodges, some hotels and travel agents in urban areas accept credit cards, but these should not be relied on and can incur a 10% surcharge.
