Arusha Cultural Heritage Center Tanzania

The Arusha Cultural Heritage Centre is located in Arusha, Tanzania. It is a place where the past and present of Tanzania’s 120-plus tribes can be viewed in a single compound. The centre boasts of various carvings, gemstones, artefacts, clothing and books.

Cultural Heritage is a unique cultural centre on the outskirts of Arusha. We have curio shops, a jewellery boutique, a tanzanite and precious stone counter, a restaurant, bargain centre and outstanding commercial art gallery. There are a vast array of ornaments, jewellery, antiques and local crafts to cater for any budget. High-quality clothing, textiles, accessories, books and spices can also be found onsite at Onaway and the Spice Centre.

Our exquisite collection of precious and semi-precious stones – including rubies, emeralds, tsavorite, diamonds, sapphires and opals – is unrivalled across the continent. Of these our most highly treasured is tanzanite – a rare blue/violet stone found only in Tanzania, for which we have an international reputation. Purchase loose stones, select from our ranges of handmade jewellery or work with our jewellers and designers to create your own unique piece.

The only collection of its kind in the world, ranging from African antiques to contemporary painting and sculpture you will be dazzled by our assembly of art and artefacts. Find some of our collections in the central store or come and experience the Gallery; a breathtaking feat of engineering and artful display that will leave you awe-struck. Expert assistants are on hand to help you purchase art by emerging African artists or fascinating antique form across the continent.

Our Restaurant has been catering for Arusha’s finest for 13 years and we prepare all of our food fresh to serve. Buffet or a la carte, with our selection of mouth-watering world foods – salads, homemade curries, traditional African dishes, French fries and hummus, who would go anywhere else?
