While some of the museum items were a bit on the basic side. The information provided, the photos, and the pleasant quietness in a hectic town make the visit worthwhile

A great place to go if you are interested in history and or politics. Well laid out and you follow his life story chronologically as you walk around the room from right side to left side. Stunning and peaceful grounds.

The section is a good memorial. I appreciate that his wife is there as well. She was just active as he. I like the covering over the mausoleuml. I really like that, unlike the places in the US, there was a humbling when people approach the mausoleum.

It is a fine and well maintained park, cointaining the tomb of the first president of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkruma. It is a good place to go for a walk, and to know about the first president of Ghana, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

If you're going to visit a country, you should take a moment to learn a bit about its history and those who have contributed to it. The indoor museum was eye-opening and enlightening.

It is an ok, attraction, midddle range at the most in any other place. I guess is meaning full to people form Ghana, but for other people it may seem not so interesting.
