This is a place worth visiting. I am a survivor of the 1997 bomb blast in Nairobi. History is difficult to erase and it affects every individual in a unique way. A park where sweet hearts meet. Rooms for hire where one can carry out trainings and fund raising. Gardens that provide the back drop for wedding photos. A theatre... More

Glad I saw the memorial. We met a woman that lost her spouse - and as she touched his name on the wall, it sent goosebumps. We were there with people from Nairobi and our host had a sister in an adjacent building - who is forever scarred by loud noises. Nice tributes, gripping photos good quotes.

Set in a small grassy area with small fountain and marble memorial at first one is disappointed until you do in an see the 50 min film which is both dramatic and informative . It puts everything into perspective . A must see .

For a memorial site...it's so relaxing...the conference centre and exhibition room is amaizing..u can carry your own food and drink...sit on the seats or the grass and enjoy...it being near the busy railway bus terminus...the noise does not reach there...

I walked to the memorial garden from the intercontinental - easy walk. The memorial garden is small, with many people sitting around or sleeping in the garden. The garden honours those who lost their lives; a worthwhile visit, especially when one considers how Kenya has moved on from so many tragedies.

Sad to say we did not clearly remember this tragic event. The Kenyans have done a beautiful job with creating this loving memorial who everyone who died or were hurt in this terrorist attack. By far the most touching (not a dry eye in the house) is the 50 minute film (which felt like about 15 minutes). It is a... More

This pretty little garden and reserved memorial was very pleasant to visit and gave a nice spot to be calm and reflect on this tragic event. There were a few people enjoying the serenity and sipping on a coffee or cool bottle of water. It cost a couple a couple of dollars but was a nice little place to take... More

It cost a couple of EURO to visit. It turned out to be a quiet oasis even though it is situated on the corner of a busy intersection. An informal atmosphere and a good place to meet Nairobeans.
