This is certainly worth a visit and the guide, who showed us round, was very helpful The centre gives a considerable insight into this area of Uganda.
Do great to see the Ankole preserve their cultural heritage in this way. Good Centre with a small museum and very knowledgeable guides. There is a very basic shop and a good restaurant. Hotel nearby. Definitely worth a visit
If you happen to drive through Mbarara, you should definitely stop at the museum which offers very interesting insight in the history and former daily life of the tribes of this region. There are a lot of good explanations and artefacts. Outside, you'll find traditional huts.…
I visit this museum very regularly. I find it Rich and curated facility, clean and modern. The staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes to understand the of western Uganda, history and their culture.
We very much enjoyed our dinner at the Igongo Cultural Centre. We had a long journey ahead of us, and the staff accommodated our schedule with efficient service. The food was splendid, and everyone was very pleasant.
