Directions to Beit El Sahel (Palace Museum)
Beit el-Sahel served as the Sultan's residence until 1964, when the dynasty was overthrown. The museum is devoted to the era of Zanzibar sultanate. Open daily 9am to 6pm. The Palace Museum is a large building with castellated battlements overlooking the Indian Ocean on Mizingani Road in Stone Town. Incredibly, a significant collection of the Sultan's furniture and other possessions survived the revolution and can be seen by the public today. Of particular note is a room dedicated to the famous Princess Salme, daughter of Sultan Said, who eloped to Hamburg with a German merchant in 1866. Renowned for her manuscript 'Memoirs of an Arabian Princess from Zanzibar', her autobiography is the only known written account of what life was like for Arab women of the Royal court in the 1800s.
