A worthwhile stop on a tour of Accra. There is a large monument to Nkrumah that uses a reflecting pool to good effect. The surrounding park is well kept and is a good place to spend a few minutes strolling around. The museum is interesting and contains some exhibits relating to the president.

The memorial garden is kept well and is a good tribute to the first president of Ghana. The monument is large and cool. The on site museum is full of photos and moments, although signage is skint. 30 minutes will be sufficient for those curious about Ghana's first president.

The most vocal and knowledgeable tour guides made my day and made you feel I had spent my money well. The entrance fee is also not that expensive. Fees are abour US$3.50 per head - not bad.

I little boring and although the park itself is fine the actual museium part of it lacks substance. I enjoyed some of the sculpures and the history was interesting but I think that they should possibly expand it to cover more of the political history of the country and not only dedicate it to one man.

An unusual place to visit, a museum, a mausoleum, great gardens and then a canopy walkway. You get a history of politics, view photographs and wander around the gardens.Separate price for tourists which is understandbale and great that locals can visit for a few cedis

Excellent way to get a potted recent history of Ghana and learn how its independence came about. Don't miss the museum which is far from the entrance gate.

If not the respect to the first president of Ghana, I would not advice anybody to go there. There is nothing much to see, apart from the museum with some very interesting photographs.

The flowers were a beauty to behold. The garden is well mowed and very neat and quiet. There is an array of plants all over and that long pillar where nkrumah is laid to rest. He will surely be resting in such a beautiful place.
