Huye Ethnographic Museum

Inaugurated on September 18, 1989, in Huye, Southern Province.

The Ethnographic Museum was the first museum to be opened in Rwanda and is mainly known for its Collection on Rwanda’s rich culture and way of life; that is to say Farming, Hunting, fishing, pottery, dress code, and many more elements of Rwandan Culture.
As community-based project the Institute of National Museums of Rwanda has on site a Teaching Center of Traditional Handcrafts that works with young children with an aim of preserving and restoring Rwanda’s Culture.
