Rwanda museums to promote cultural tourism


(eTN) – The Rwanda national museums have, just in time for the big Kwita Izina week, announced that they will play their part in promoting cultural tourism aspects to visitors, showing them the rich history and variety the country has enjoyed for many generations going back hundreds of years.

The launch of the project is set for June 14 at the Rukari National Museum in Nyanza District of Rwanda where a range of artifacts and memorabilia will be shown to Rwandans and foreign visitors alike to create awareness of just how rich the country’s history is, in spite of the events of 1994.

The Rwanda Development Board–Tourism and Conservation is also throwing its weight behind the scheme, as is the tourism private sector, to enrich itineraries for tourist visitors while in the country and give them a glimpse into what life in Rwanda used to be, as well as what it is now.
