Rwanda Art Museum reviews
It is hard to imagine a collection of less inspired guides than at this museum. The history of the house is what makes the museum (mildly) interesting.

We visited the Rwanda Art Museum this morning and so enjoyed our visit. We had a lovely guide who walked us through the previous President's home. While it's 40 years old, it was still very pleasant..... more

Interesting place with a very unique architectural style - but mostly something for art lovers Many pictures and creations of rwandan artists, often abstract, but no written interpretation and the guide couldn't always help But not a lot of information about the history of the house, wasting some potential in my opinion To visit the site of the airplane crash you have to pay extra (10k - which seems way to high) At least the gardens are included in the price for the museum, giving a little more insights
This museum is fairly new, but there's still a lot to see and learn. We're not allowed to take photos inside so you'll have to go and enjoy it yourself.
