Swahili House Museum is a big hit with children as it depicts life in Lamu and provides insight to Swahili culture and traditions. A tour of this fully restored traditional stone house complete with period furniture and cookware yields a few secrets too. Did you know that the wikios or covered walkways that connect several of the old homes once enabled locals to move between houses without going out on the street?
