  • Entry at Niyo Arts Gallery is FREE. Every purchase you make some percentage goes back to support the 120 need children in a program by the Gallery Founder. There are also some very nice art work. I bought myself some. You can actually contact the gallery from their socials or website in case you need to know something. I also believe they have the traditional dance happening on either from Thursday. In case I go there again I will confirm this and update accordingly. When in Kigali don't fail to go to this place. Taking of photos is allowed.
  • Very encouraging to see painters from the great lakes region working
