In the National Museum, the visitors would find the famous fossil discoveries of Nutcracker man or Zinjanthropus from Oldupai Gorge. Although, it is only a copy, everyone would find it quite interesting. There are several other archeological finds as well. One can wander through the ethnographic collection and history room for knowing more about the past of Tanzania and its mosaic of cultures. This includes the British colonial periods, German colonial periods, Zanzibar slave trade and Shirazi Civilisation of Kilwa. However, even though there are these recent renovations, there are no appropriate displays found in the museum. Curation of coherent narrative is required.
