About National Liberation Museum Park

 

National Liberation Museum tells the story of the Rwandan Liberation struggle that was the end to the Genocide against Tutsis. The political wing known as the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF)  started the struggle from the first of October 1990 to the fourth of July 1994.

 

The museum narrates the sequence of events before, during and after the struggle. It displays visuals that include text and artifacts.

 

Among the objects, there is one that exhibits the bunker that protected the then Chairman of High Command, and now President of the Republic of Rwanda, H.E Paul Kagame. 

 

Other objects in the museum represent the Arusha Agreement, a Campaign against Genocide, radio Muhabura used by the RPF and RPA for mobilisation, likeminded events besides initiatives. 

 

The longstanding bunker that sheltered H.E Paul Kagame along with other official’s bunkers is fascinating.
