“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

My advice is that nobody should go to Rwanda without visiting this place. I have not enough words to describe what I saw and the experience afterwards. It is really a revelation.

“Have to visit when in Rwanda!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Emotionally draining to visit this museum. There is nothing good to say about a genocide. The facts and pictures are there to see and hopefully for humanity to learn from - it was easy to follow the history of events. Some of the lights were not working so the museum was dark in some places and difficult to read the information. I will not visit the museum again but a must see if you are in Rwanda.

“A "must see"”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Very well done museum/memorial. This HAS to be on everyone's list when you visit Kigali. Make sure you also walk around the grounds.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

The sights here are very thought provoking and not always easy to digest but it definitely wouldn't have been right to visit Rwanda and not learn about their history.
