Beautiful and serene place with extremely relaxing ambiance. What a nice way to breath the Nairobi fresh air in a safe peaceful and quite place. Worthy a visit.

This is a nice place to come and rest. After the embassy was bombed, the space was turned into a garden. It is one of the few places in Nairobi that is green and quiet.

It is a good place for relaxing. It is a historic site. It is next to the main Co-operative Bank of Kenya.

Clean place with a great message to give. I liked the clean area and the peace that you can feel in the middle of a busy city. There was nothing I did not like.

It's just a small garden, would be nice to have an outdoor meeting there but that's about it, nothing spectacular.

The exhibit was very educational! There was a very peaceful park at the memorial area that was well maintained for people to sit out and enjoy the day!

No places to sit, tables that were plastic and falling over, only the landscape was worth walking through

Worthwhile to pay tribute to our fellow service men and women who lost their life here. Had distant relative who lost her life in that barbaric act of terrorism. Small, filled up but still worth a visit.
