Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is the burial place of four kings and royal family members, and it has spiritual and cultural significance for Ugandans. The thatched-roof palace is a stellar example of traditional architecture with its use of organic materials for construction.

The Ndere Troup performs traditional dance and music several times a week at Ndere Centre. The National Theatre offers quality music, film, dance, and drama programs inside, and travelers flock to the more informal evening outdoor events that feature music jams and comedy.
