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.
