It will be a unique museum in the world, the one that one of the most famous and celebrated international architects and designers, Daniel Libeskind, designed and will be built in the middle of Kenya's Rift Valley. It is "Ngaren Museum of Humankind", a great temple dedicated to the history of the human being and that could only be built in the Cradle of Civilization. 
You can already imagine that it will become a must for many cultural safaris and scholars and onlookers from around the world.
The construction of the museum, which will open its doors to the public in 2024, is made with the support of paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey, whose fossil discoveries have helped to reveal how humans evolved. The futuristic structure, from the shape of the ancient working tools of the first men to appear on Earth, between Kenya and Ethiopia, will host a permanent exhibition in which visitors will learn the history of the evolution of humanity Over two million years of history, from the first tools of our ancestors to the insights of modern science, Ngaren will show visitors how humanity has changed the rules of nature and how our behavior must change if we want to survive.
In the museum designed by Libeskind there will be artifacts and images, art and exhibitions that, with the help of technology, will help to study our oldest past in order to better interpret the future and the changes that are taking place in more recent times.
"The museum will be a place of discovery, wonder and contemplation," said the American designer of Polish origin. The work, which will rise in a panoramic point overlooking the entire oldest plateau in the world, about seventy kilometers from Nairobi in County Kajado, is designed to put the works in dialogue and communication between them. An innovative structure destined to become a pole of excellence for anthropology.
