Gitega National Museum was established in 1955 and is located in Gitega a vast city just a few kilometers in the East of Bujumbura the capital city of Burundi with various collections of musical instruments, weapons as well as witchcraft tools. It includes the Musée Vivant which was founded in 1977 in Bujumbura and this comprises of a reptile house, an aquarium, aviary, open-air theater and botanical gardens. While here, you will view the photographs of Burundi’s monarchies and learn about their modern struggles with the ethnic wars as well as the Genocide. The outside part is not very attractive and the aesthetics are not great in general although the content and information you will get here is very relevant and legendary. There are various Karyenda royal drum sanctuaries in the area as well as the Ibwami (royal court) in the area.
