On August 7th 1998, a group of terrorists used a car bomb to blow up the then United States Embassy located at the corner of Moi and Haile Selassie Avenues, causing the deaths of 218 innocent people and injuring thousands of others. So powerful was the explosion that it could be heard as far away as the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, while the shock wave was felt over the city causing many buildings to tremble. As a result, a new Embassy was constructed on a heavily fortified site at Gigiri while ownership of the existing site was donated by the American and Kenyan people to a trust charged with turning it into a Memorial Park as a tribute to the victims but also a place where the public would be educated about the futility of violence and the essence of peace. The construction of the Park and Museum was made possible by donations in cash and kind by a number of individuals, companies and organizations, leading to its opening on 7th August 2001. The Memorial Park comprises a landscaped garden, a Memorial Wall commemorating the names of those who died and several other features that hold a symbolic meaning relevant to the tragic event. The Visitors Centre, which also houses the Museum, has remarkable conference facilities that can be hired for short term or prolonged durations and can accommodate up to 60 people. All proceeds from the gate charges, conference facilities, meeting rooms, hire of venue for events and advertising space go towards the sustenance and maintenance of the Memorial Park.

The visitors center has photos of dignitaries who have visited, artwork from children and personal stories from some of the survivors. The most poignant part was the excellent video describing the events of the day with personal insights and tracking down the perpetrators. Very informative, especially for an American.

The park is small, but still affords a quiet refuge for anyone willing to pay the nominal entrance fee. A higher admission price is due to enter the memorial museum, where exhibits explain the whole history of the site. Learning about the horrors inflicted by a truck bomb but also hearing the stories of survivors and rescuers might inspire conflicting... 更多

Located in the Central Business Disctrict in Nairobi, this place was build in memory of those who lost life during the terror attack back in 1998. It has a cafe, very nice garden, mid size conference hall. It also has the names of all those who lost their lives during the attack. Its worth a visit while in Nairobi.

The destination doesnt really have much rather than the memorial and a seating area. But all the same it is okay.

This park is very accesible and pleasant. In the heart of Nairobi it is also near the Train Museum and many of the bus connections.

The gardens are a peaceful place amid the bustling city. While small, they offer a nice place to sit and enjoy the quiet. There is a small museum inside, as well. On Sundays it can get quite crowded. There was a bounce house for children and several group meetings going on when we went. The entry into the park is... 更多

The gardens are not big or austentageous but you feel a real sense of peace here. The names of those who lost their lives are on an attractive monument and you can sit quietly and pay your respects.

Whenever opportunity arises, similar to the genocide memorial in Kigali, I pay my respect to those fallen to the senseless act of terror inflicted on not just the American Embassy at the time but also Kenyans who suffered greatly from this crime. It is now a permanent reminder that our world no longer is what it once was and that... 更多

Before I say more - this garden is obviously a memorial to a dreadful act of terrorism. It does therefore feel slightly inappropriate describing it as an attraction. However it is here to remind us of those who lost their lives - and to encourage us all to reflect up the futility of violence to achieve 'political' or 'religious' objectives.... 更多

It is a small but a rather quiet place. People get to visit and remember their loved ones who died in the 1998 bomb blast.
