Cultural and History

Ethnographic museum (Former national museum of Rwanda)

The former national museum of Rwanda was turned into the ethnographic museum which was started in 1989 and is located in Huye. Before that, the national museum was the only museum in Rwanda and it has the finest ethnographic and archaeological collections in east Africa with over 10,000 artefacts. These show monochrome photographs which show the insights of pre-colonial life styles and the subsequent development of Rwanda into a modern state. This museum also tells the social and cultural aspects of Rwanda were you can find the famous aspects of culture of this country.

Caplaki Crafts Village

There are plenty of places all over Kigali with a variety of Rwanda-y items that will wow and delight friends and family. If you have been wondering where to actually buy all of these wonderful things! This one of the places to shop for a bunch of different types of Rwandan souvenirs and mementos all across the city. Caplaki is Kigali’s largest souvenir-specific market and they’ve got tonnes of items spread across dozens of individual stalls.

Kimironko Market

If you’re willing to brave the somewhat overwhelming Kimironko Market, you’ll be rewarded with some  cheap prices on the usual souvenirs. A good piece of advice would be to embrace the help of our guides. They can help you find things fast at the end they’ll save you a bunch of time and probably money too.
