The museum in the parliament building holds some additional aspects of the genocide and is a compliment to the Memorial. It shows the military and political side of struggle. Very well done and our tour guide was excellent.

This place just opened up and tells a complete story (with a live guided tour) of the resistance and background to the Genocide that eventually ended up with the liberation of Kigali in July 1994. Heroic stories.

I don't remember how many time I walked around the Kigali's Parliament. Whenever remembering sad memories during genocide time. But I hope that today there are more security guarantees.

This is the parliament nothing special. The building is of basic architecture. You can see just stopping at the entrance.

Okay, a bit of history... There are bullet holes in the side of the Parliament. The government chose to leave them as a testimony of what happened in the 1994 genocide. It is a reminder of what was and how far the Rwandans have come.

I drove past the Parliament enough times. There was nothing to write home about the parliament in my opinion, save for the few bullet holes on one side of the building. It also didn't occur to me that it is open to the public, so...More
