The museum is situated at the end of the Boma road neighboring the Arusha International Conference Center, the Arusha Municipal Council, and the Arusha Regional Offices.
It is harbored in the Old German Boma. The boma is believed to be founded by the Germans in about 1900, for administration and communication purposes during the Germans colonial era in Tanganyika.
The Museum was opened to the public in 1987 with the exhibits depicting human evolution, including findings from the famous Olduvai Gorge and the Laetoli footprints. A modest exhibition on entomology presenting some insects of economic importance is also an attraction to visitors.
