Totally worth the visit, it has a wide selection of African art, mostly from Tanzania. All items are overpriced but you can easily negotiate.
A really excellent facility in Arusha for both tourists and collectors; free entry and lots of beautiful things to look at (in a wonderful Frank Lloyd Wright style building), no pressure to buy, but everything available to buy if you are interested - including genuine African antiques and really wonderful artifacts. Definitely should be a part of your Arusha itinerary.
Go and look. Dont buy anything. Prices are higher more than in 10 times than they should. Go in mto wa mbu, there will be 2 carving shops on both sides of the road. You will see, they have bridges made of palettes. One of them carve inside (tarangire side), try to get items for 30% of initial price they tell you. I got there big ebony giraffe and big ebony elephant for 150k, and I overpaid. This could cost 120k.
Its a good place where you can find some artifacts that are bestowed for future generation and the existing one.

The best gallery in Arusha. A must place to visit while in Arusha. Mr saifu is very friendly.
While the Cultural Heritage Center boasts some amazing cultural treasures from around Africa, visitors get the feeling that theyve been herded to a much travelled tourist trap. As such, visitors should be aware of this and calibrate their expectations accordingly. However, for those interested in purchasing cultural items, there is a wide array of options and vendors who largely seem to be selling authentic wares.
Nice place to buy souvenir

A place with history. The Cultural Heritage Center shows the art history of the country in an impressive exhibition that combines a mixture of paintings, carvings, historical masks and the famous Tree of Life. The café in front of it offers delicious sandwiches and good Wi-Fi for stubborn children while admiring the aura of the place.
