The Karen Blixen Museum was originally the home of Karen Blixen, who came to Kenya from Denmark in the early part of the 19th 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.
