Abstract[edit | edit source]
We join User:Ms Kabintie for a GLAMWiki tour of the Nairobi National Museum, one of the 20 National Museums of Kenya. We go behind the scenes for exclusive content around recent discoveries, the study, documentation and preservation of mammals and how the laboratory is assisting in the fight against COVID-19.
We also join User:Discott for a GLAMWiki tour of Iziko South African National Gallery, South Africa's premier art museum housing outstanding permanent and temporary collections of multi-disciplinary art from South Africa and around the world. We look at two of their most popular exhibits with the Curator of Contemporary art.
