The Ethnographic Museum , formerly the National Museum of Rwanda (French: Musée national du Rwanda, Kinyarwanda: Ingoro y’Umurage w’u Rwanda), is the national museum of Rwanda. It is located in Butare.
It was built with help of the Belgian government. It first opened in 1989 and it is a good source of information on the cultural history of the country and the region. It is also known as the site of the murder of Queen Dowager Rosalie Gicanda and several others during the Rwandan Genocide.
