You will have to take a bus from Kigali to Nyamata, but it's less than an hour each way and well worth the visit. We took bike taxis from the bus station to the church (a cheap and popular option). There are a couple buildings on site, one being the church, where the Hutus invaded during the genocide. Clothes and bones of victims fill the buildings, and blood stains are still visible on some walls. Be prepared for some disturbing stories and images, but the visit is definitely an important piece of history for all of us to learn about and remember.
I visited in November of 2012.
