Karen Blixen Museum
Karen Blixen was a notable Kenyan personality who lived and
farmed on the outskirts of Nairobi from 1917 to 1931 when she
returned to Denmark bankrupt and heartbroken at being forced to
leave Africa. Writing under the name Isak Dinesen she authored
acclaimed books including Out of Africa which inspired an Oscar
winning film of the same name. The main building of the original
house, M'Bogani House, now houses the Karen Blixen Museum and
retains much of its original furniture and other photographs and
items of interest. The museum is situated in the suburb of Karen, a
short drive from the city centre.
