“Wouldn't have missed this at all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

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 .

“cool...relaxing...at the heart of Nairobi.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

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...

“Sad memories”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

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.

“Surprisingly touching and beautifully done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

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 remarkable film about a horrific experience. We highly recommend to everyone but esp. to Americans.

“Worth a stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

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 a break and chill out whilst on a walk through the city.
