There is also an excellent view from the second floor balconybut the stairways are about 50 steps each.

Do not miss this interesting place - for many reasons! You need to experience the greatest view from the upper floor balconiesallowing the visitor to admire the fabulous panorama of the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar harbor and Stone City.

The view is asking for photos! The house itself is interesting to visit and to learn about. It was a first building in Zanzibar with electricity, running water, elevator and phone.

Inside the House of Wonders there is a very good, simply appointed National Museum. It creates an opportunity to learn about both the history and culture of Zanzibar.

See also the famous clock on the tower. It shows the Swahili time based on hours of the daylight.

This museum was practically empty of tourists when we went.
