  • The art is amazing but keep in mind that this is a super high end galleria. So unless you have 4K minimum you won’t be walking away with a piece. Very nice art to see.

  • Lovely place with lovely art promoting local artists and training orphaned children and those living around the community. The latte I had at the cafe was also very good and every part of the center was artistic. There were local artsy items on display for sale like ornaments, bags etc and various collections from all around Africa There was a dance and song practice by the children in the evening also.
  • Entry at Inema Arts Gallery is FREE. You get to see some very nice artwork from Creative artists. The best day to go is Thursday afternoon to evening coz they have a the local Rwandan Dance. The Inema Coffee Shop also has happy hour. You can also buy art to take home with you.
  • I found someone at the entrance who was very friendly. He showed me around, answered all my questions and even helped me find my way to the Rwanda Art Museum. The art pieces are amazing! The joint is worth stopping by if you are an art enthusiast and you find yourself in Kigali.
  • A nice gallery set in a house with modern painting and a fun garden with sculptures. The visit takes about 15mn. The fact that this gallery is on the ‘to do list’ of Kigali says more about the limited number of attractions in the capital than about this gallery…
  • It was nice to meet local artists. They paint in a really difference styles, so any visitor can find something what fits there taste. Visit is free and you have an opportunity to buy something in the suvenir shop or to get one of the paintings. They got an amazing fog too.
