Karen House was
the former residence of Karen Blixen, author of the best-selling
novel Out of Africa. The house was purchased as an
estate comprising 6000 acres in 1917 by Bror and Karen Blixen
and for some years was run as a coffee plantation. This was her
home until a series of personal tragedies forced her to leave
Kenya in 1931.
museum was originally the home of Karen Blixen, who came to Kenya
from Denmark in the early part of this century; the present museum
site is at the heart of the larger coffee plantation run by Blixen
between 1914 and 1931. The house and surrounding land was donated
by the Danish government to Kenya at independence; the house was
restored by the Danish government and was used during the filming
of Out of Africa, which immortalized Karen Blixen's book by the
same name. The Museum was opened to the public in 1986.
Much of the original furniture is on display in the house, and
combined with the beautifully landscaped gardens and encompassing
view of the Ngong Hills, the Museum has continued to a be very
popular destination for international and local visitors.
The original kitchen has been restored and is now open for viewing.
A Dove Stove similar to the one used by Blixen is on display,
as are other period kitchen utensils. Reconstruction of the coffee
factory as an additional attraction is underway and other early
farm machinery is also on display, depicting the early settler
life in Kenya.
