Site has no official online presence, so how are visitors supposed to know when it is open and how much it costs?

I got there, ticket is 35,000 for one foreign adult ($10 USD). OK, do you take credit cards? Yes, but machine is broken. Right. Bought ticket and was then told I was not allowed to walk around by myself, I needed a guide. Is the guide included? No. How much is the guide? It's up to you. You mean guide is included but a tip is up to me? Guide is not included.

I have no clue what that circular conversation was about. I was not charged an additional fee for the guide. I tipped the guide.

This would be a lot easier if relevant information were posted online and also prominently visible at ticket office. Relevant info includes entry fees, whether credit cards are accepted (don't say they're accepted but not have a working machine), that a guide is required, that no additional fee is charged for the guide but tips are appreciated, hours of operation, and location of main security gate.

Site is an important spot for Uganda, but as far as tours go, there isn't much to see. There is no museum or visitors' center. Guide takes you to exterior front of undistinguished 1930s house but you can't go inside or walk around the building. It's just a photo op. Basically guide verbally rehashes recent Ugandan history while standing in front of house.

Perhaps main draw for many is an arsenal formerly used for torturing people. Dark place to be sure, but it looks like a truck unloading platform which is its purpose-built function. There is no exhibit, no supporting evidence, no oral histories, absolutely nothing to substantiate and deepen this presentation. It's "Bad stuff happened here, take my word for it."

I went to see the arsenal. For those who aren't locals for which the site is imbued with meaning, unless you have a specific reason to visit, it's a tough sell. Given the unprofessionalism with which site presents itself to the world, it's an even tougher sell to foreign tourists.

DATE VISITED: 24 Jan 2022; 35,000/foreign adult plus whatever tip for guide

A fascinating piece of Buganda history. The Royal Palace of the Buganda Kingdom, built in 1885 by Kabaka (King) Daniel Mwanga 11, is key to understanding Buganda culture and history, but thoroughly undermarketed as a tourist attraction. This is really a place all visitors to Kampala should have on their checklist.

The Palace faces the Buganda Parliament - another key cultural institution where all Buganda clans are represented. The two buildings are linked by a boulevard known as the Royal Mile, featuring sculptures of various animals and insects, each representing a clan.

The site is also home to the torture chambers used by the regimes of former dictators Milton Obote and Idi Amin Dada.

You can't understand Uganda until you understand Buganda - it´s most populous and prosperous area. For no other reason than that it is worth visiting the Kabaka´s Palace - the ceremonial home of the King of Buganda.

While you cannot go inside the Palace - a general tour (outside) with the guide would give you a great perspective of the recent history of Uganda in general and the Buganda kingdom in particular. Few aspects are important:
1. Take a guide - otherwise it is merely desultory visit.
2. Go to the torture chambers of Idi Amin in the Palace grounds. A grim reminder of the macabre period that Uganda had to endure.
3. If you are inclined - see the photographs of important recent events in the museum / souvenir shop. Gives you a good perspective of the history and story as explained by your guide.

Lastly, there are some lovely paintings on the traditional bark cloth. Do buy them here - I doubt if you will get them anywhere else in Uganda.

My tour of the King's Place of Mengo was wow; the history of Twekobe, view of the 7 hills of Kampala, Idi Amin's canon, Idi Amin's Dungeon and the general history of the palace was icredible!

Het paleis kan je zelf niet in, omdat de koning er vanwege de geschiedenis niet meer wilt wonen. Onze tour gids vertelde op een goeie manier hoe de Koninkrijken binnen Oeganda werken en de geschiedenis hiervan. De martel kamers onder het paleis maakte zeer veel indruk op ons.

Similar to the MILE in Edinburgh- a great view from the palace to the original Parliament building- The sad part of this place was Idi Amins torture chambers
