  • The place is so rich in information on the genocide. It gives artistic expression that is unique n emphasis the need for love, unity, forgiveness n reconciliation. Loved the fact that no photography is allowed in the presidential palace n to get in one has to remove their shoes, the place is sparkling clean, the staff are wow n give the place it's real meaning. U haven't been there? Please make plans to pay them a visit, u won't regret u did.
  • It's a real historical place and also a gallery full of lovely art pieces that you would wanna look at
