It is a place to offer tribute to the loss of people from many countries who lost their lives serving in the great cooperative house, American embassy, and even the citizens, visitors and many others. The place is accessible during the day, convenient. It feels good... More

The number of names of victims of the bombing engraved on the memorial wall is stunning and saddening, but the nearby museum exhibits tell not only the tale of tragedy but also stories of survivors and rescuers, and memorable quotes notable visitors to this urban oasis and place of remembrance.

Never heard of August the 7th. Imagine how impressed we were getting to know our history by visiting a park of remembrance as this! Beautiful, quiet, respectful, all leading towards some remembrance stones, a bar and a wonderful museum of what happened there that day (Nairobi under attack) -containing a very concrete movie about the whole subject as well-.
