Rwanda Art Museum

Formerly the Presidential Palace Museum, this new museum displays contemporary artworks from Rwanda as well as abroad.

The museum seeks to provide an insight into the originality of Rwandan creativity. Exploring the development of art from olden times to the modern day, it considers how traditional and modern imaginations can blend and fuse.

The flight debris from the presidential jet that went down on 6th April 1994 remain in situ in the garden and this will remain a heritage site.
