Museums are centres of education and research and play an important role in society documenting our culture and the natural world around us. As such museums belong to the community and without the involvement and pride of the community museums will flounder. The Natural History Museum of Bulawayo is one of the best in Southern Africa and is something of which the citizens of Bulawayo are immensely proud.

Khami Site Museum DisplayThe Friends of the Natural History Museum is a loose association of volunteers and supporters who have an affinity for our heritage and would like to help in whichever way they can to preserve this for future generations. The Friends act on a voluntary and non-remunerative basis. Their support is moral, financial or consists of voluntary work or expertise.

Fund raising efforts have included Fun Days at the Museum, Treasure Hunts in the Museum, Nights in the Museum, Golf Days, Screening of Motion Pictures and Conservation Club to name a few.

The Natural History Museum of Bulawayo launched its Friends of the Museum on 16th May 2012. Membership to the Friends is minimal. To join or make a donation please contact either the Museum Director or the Friends Association: friendsnhz@gmail.com

This is a fabulous treasure for Zimbabwe with around 7 separate galleries of very well presented exhibits such as geology, entomology, herpetology, African mammals, colonial history, local African tribes, astronomy, humankind and mycology (fungi). It also houses hundreds of thousands of specimens in around 10 Collections, including arachnids, Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths), birds, snakes, plants and fungi - these Collections can be seen but by appointment only. The museum staff are pleasant and knowledgeable. There is an onsite café to pick up a snack or two and a public library of really interesting natural history books. There is also good info on the two World Heritage sites managed by the museum, these being the Matobo World View site and the Khami Ruins which are also magical places to go and visit!
