Rwanda’s first museum covers an impressive array of topics on almost anything about Rwanda you can imagine: banana beer (!), basketry, geology, cosmology, farming, cattle, music, dance, poetry, history, tools, and transport are all profiled here, and there’s a good gift shop for baskets on site as well. If you see one museum in Rwanda, this should be it. Do not expect the exibition to be of Western standards though ;)
The ‘Land of a thousand hills’ maybe associated with the Rwandan Genocide in 1994, but it’s a surprisingly peaceful country of friendly people who are very optimistic about their country's future. If you are into mountain gorilla’s, beautiful lush green rural scenary, volcanoes, rolling hills and valleys combined with lakes and beaches - this is the place to go.
