Interesting touristic place to visit. It has been maintained but only outside in the garden and around the statues. Inside the museum lacks more interesting topics to display. I learned more about Kwame Nkrumah when I visited.

Enjoyed the park. Very relaxing yet powerful. Learned a lot about Kwame Nkrumah as a leader and a power figure in Ghana. When coming to Ghana must visit.

The grounds are quaint, yet full of history. Very peaceful. I admire the distinguished way of honoring. I could see the "upside down sword" depiction as explained. The rich deep history shown at this memorial park was very moving to me. The Mango tree planted by Nelson Mandela added that special tribute as well as the reflecting ponds and statues... More

I never realised how much this man did for Ghana and Guinea, his patience and determination paid of well, Ghana is a very Christian country, the Ghanians are very happy people.

We visited this park in the year 2000 and connected with the 'Spirit of Ghana'. You could almost feel Ghana's history in the atmosphere, its struggles, hopes and aspirations. Memorable!

The park was great and I though it was great. The picture that they have on here for TeeP644 is not me. I don't know who they are but the park was great. The Beach behind it on the other hand was nasty and dirty and we had people approach us to give them money because they keep the beach... More

I enjoyed the historical presentation of Nkrumah's goal to gain independence from British control and his futuristic ideology for the progress and sustainability of Ghana.

A neatly maintained memorial for the father and founder of Ghana. In the main city of Accra amidst the busy High Street. Best time is to go there in the evening as mornings will be a bit uneasy due hot climate. Nearby attractions are Art centre of Ghana where you can find loads of collections of art works in wood...
