All About The Visit To Rwanda’s Ethnographic Museum

The Ethnographic museum in Rwanda is one the most popular tourist attractions and this was the former national museum of Rwanda. This property was built with big help of the Belgian government and it still stands today as a perfect source of information of the country on the cultural history. The museum is located in Butare which is also known as huye in the southern province of Rwanda and many visitors to  Nyungwe forest National Park for chimpanzee trekking safari in Rwanda usually make a brief stop here to  learn and get more information about the culture and history of the country. This museum was first opened in 1989 and historically this was the site where Queen Dowager Rosalie Gicanda was murdered with many others during the Rwandan Genocide. Queen Gicanda was a wife to  a Rwandan Mwami Mutare, she reigned as queen for 2 years after the husband had mysteriously died. Therefore basically the Rwandan Monarchy lasted for 2 years. There is so much history about the leader’s ship Queen Gicande and her husband and how Rwanda moved from Kingdomship to the current style of leadership. All this can only be known or gotten when you visit the Ethnographic Museum of Rwanda.
