Details van Kigali activities

Kimironko market 

If you want to experience Rwanda at its liveliest, a visit to this busiest market in town is a must. Gigantic amounts of fresh produce dominate over the abundance of fabric, clothing, shoes, and general household necessities. 

This large warehouse complex is cleverly divided into sections that follow logically, so there's no fear you'll pose for the seamstress, taking measurements for your new unique piece, while next to you a butcher swings his knife.

Kigali Genocide museum

This resting place for more than 250,000 victims of the Genocide was built as a place of remembrance and learning of how far hatred can go. It is intended to be a reminder and a lesson that such a crime would never be committed again. This sombre place is meant to be a light in the bright future. 

Campaign against Genocide Museum

Rwanda Kigali

Campaign against Genocide Museum 

Before or after visiting the Genocide Museum, a visit to the Campaign against Genocide Museum, located in the Parliament building in central Kigali will offer a deeper, detailed insight. It presents the Genocide against the Tutsi from a military perspective and demonstrates the bravery and sacrifice of the RPF in their work in liberating Rwanda in 1994. 

Millenium village

One of the initial 14 Millenium Villages, Mayange, is a great example of how good ideas bear fruit. This cluster of four villages is prospering exponentially, people gain education and means to earn money. It is also proof that economic development can play a significant role in the reconciliation process. The Nyamata Church in Mayange is a site of two mass graves, containing the remains of 40,000 genocide victims.

Nyamirambo Women’s center

Inema art center 

In the heart of Kigali, there lies this gem. Inema Art Center, one of East African's major art galleries and so much more! Many different creativity programmes connect people of all ages and from all backgrounds. Soak in the positive energy, enjoy all that different art and maybe take a memorable piece back home, to fondly remember Rwanda forever. 

Niyo arts centre 

Another jewel, Niyo Arts Centre, displays a collection of Rwandan creative artists and artists from the region. But, of course, there's more.
