Rabai is well known as the place where Christianity and modern learning in Kenya started well over 150 years ago. In 1994 the Krapf Memorial Museum was founded to give formal and a perpetual reminder to monumental events during the advent of early missionaries. Stories about the first missionaries were passed on by word of mouth and are still told today. Built in 1846 as the first Church edifice in Kenya, Rabai is situated about 25 km north-west of Mombasa, off the Nairobi-Mombasa highway on Mazeras-Kaloleni road, about half an hour’s drive from Mombasa. Much of the museum focuses on the work of Johann Ludwig Krapf, who built the church with Johannes Rebmann. The attractions of Rabai Museum include; – St. Paul’s Church complex – Rebmann’s cottage which is currently used as a school – Krapf’s House – Mission Market – Bohora and Islam mosque within mission land – The Iron’ house belonging to Rev. Samuel Kuri
