Butare in Rwanda

Visit the intellectual capital of Rwanda! Butare, the former colonial seat of power in the South Province of Rwanda, is regarded as the cultural capital of the country even though Kigali has become the official political capital after independence. Butare is home to the National University of Rwanda as well as the Rwandan National Institute of Scientific Research. Visit the National Museum of Rwanda, built in the early 1990s and held to be a prime source of information on the cultural history of the country and the region. The Museum is often referenced as the best museum in East Africa in many a travel brochure!
