Ngaren, The Museum of Humankind, will be the world’s first museum dedicated exclusively to the story of humankind. It is an ambitious project spearheaded by renowned conservationist, paleoanthropolo¬gist and philanthropist, Richard E. Leakey. The museum will be located on a 300-acre parcel in Loodariak, which is south east of Nairobi in Kajiado County, Kenya. The area, which is in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, is known for its savannah, geology, fauna and rich history as the cradle of human life. The museum site is about 60 kilometers, or a short drive, from Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi. Loodariak is a rural area, with a population of about 10,000, who are mostly members of the Massai tribe.
Ngaren celebrates the beginnings of all humanity. Dedicated to educating humankind on our shared past, Ngaren tells the story of our common ancestry, our epic journeys and our future obligation to protect the planet that is our only home. At Ngaren, we believe that the inhabitants of our planet have always had challenges to confront and problems to navigate. The human being, as well as the whale or eagle or any other living creature, is a product of change. Our response to challenges is a measure of our success and growth. And what we learn from the past is the key to our future.
