Hyrax Hill Museum is located 4 km outside Nakuru town. The site is close to the Nairobi- Nakuru highway, approximately 150 km away from Nairobi City. From Lake Nakuru, the hill is about 4.5 km with its base about 100 m above the lake.

The results of numerous excavations yielded three major areas of pre-historic settlement; the oldest dating to 3000 years and the youngest to possibly 300 years. The museum displays ethnographic materials of the people in the Rift Valley, archaeology and local ecology.

Hyrax Hill Prehistoric Site and Museum is an ideal spot for a serene stroll away from the tourists and rhinos. You’re free to wander the site, but it’s rather enigmatic and a guide may come in handy.
