American Site Memorial Nice Touch!

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!

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.

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.

It was their 9/11 (I suppose, but back in 1998) more than 200+ people died, and the site of the old US Embassy is now a beautiful memorial park with the adjacent Memorial for the horrific event, with touching lettes of the children of those that died, reminding us that such event touches everyone, across many generations...but more so...our most...

Sad and nostalic especially when you think of all who lost thier lives. It is a very thoughtful way of Kenya to remember this horrific moment especially when so many lives were lost and it is a place of interest to those who wish to pay respect to innocent peope who died before their time. Coem with prayers and meditation... More

went there nothing much done so far but the site is just left like that. a small fee to get in is payable. outside there are seats for one to wait for friends and plan his next visit. buy drinks and newspapers etc. don't like remembering the times as many people lost lives as they were going for their own...

Quiet and safe park in Nairobi, not much to see regarding the memorial. But it's nice to stop and remember in this quiet corner of the city centre.

We took a walk at this memorial Gardens and there is no words to describe anything like this as the word are Sombere or subdued but also a reminder of all the lives that were lost through terrorism but also to remember all the time @ give peace a chance. May all the families affected in this tragedy find peace... More
