The Uganda Museum is a museum in Kampala, Uganda, which displays and exhibits ethnological, natural-historical and traditional life collections of Uganda's cultural heritage. The museum was founded in 1908 after George Wilson called for "all articles of interest"[1] on Uganda to be procured.[2]

Also among the collections in the Uganda Museum are playable musical instruments, hunting equipment, weaponry, archaeology and entomology.[3]

The Uganda museum is currently under the threat of demolition as the Uganda Government is planning to build in its place an "East African Trade Centre".[4] Four civil society organisations vis - the Historic Resources Conservation Initiatives (HRCI), Cross Cultural Foundation of Uganda (CCFU), Historical Buildings Conservation Trust (HBCT) and Jenga Afrika have taken the government of the Republic of Uganda to court to stop the government's plans.[5]
