  • 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.
