Kigali Genocide Memorial reviews
Incredibly disturbing but incredibly respectful. As it should be. Highly recommend a visit to better understand the country.

Heartbreaking and powerful - they've done a great job building and maintaining this center. A must-stop for any tourist in Kigali. We used the audio guide which I highly recommend.

Remarkable historical memorial centre that holds immense significance and emotions to Rwandans. I have always heard about the memorial centre but my visit here was more than I could ever have anticipated
My visit to KGM was very humbling and educational for me. We went through a security check before entering into the premises. We then proceeded to the reception where we received by a Man (his welcome was very refreshing) and he gave us a flier for the memorial (picture attached). There's no entry fee but you're advised to make a donation to the foundation that caters to the families affected by the Genocide in 1994, there's a audio guide (20,000RWF) also available in English that would give more information about the different spots in the memorial. There's a briefing room where you watch a clip of the major events that shaped the country we love to visit today. We walked through the different spots that highlighted major events pre, during and post genocide There's a shop where you can get crafts and souvenirs, there's a Cafe where you can get drinks and light food. I left a better perspectives to life, and I wish all who lost their lives eternal rest.
