We visited with my son who was doing a semester in Ghana. Very interesting. You aren't supposed to take pictures. Big park and sort of imposing but worth seeing.

The mausoleum is massive, imposing, and worth a brief visit. The sculptures are also beautiful and interesting. The small museum, unfortunately, looks poorly maintained, like the photos and artifacts aren't being preserved appropriately.

The water fountains were dry and the small pond leading up to the Masouleum was already green. The park itself was good.. with a lot of sitting area, but the equipments are old and in some cases not functioning.

I was expecting to see a nice monument dedicated to an extremely important figure in Ghana's history. Instead I found a small, run down museum with an interesting collection of items. The artifacts themselves were in terrible shape and it often seemed like they were just grasping at straws to include relevant items in the museum. The park itself wasn't... More

I was a little bored here as there isn't much to see but it was free and beautifully maintained. I wouldn't be bothered about visiting it again.

It should be the place to see the beginning of Ghana; the museum is reasonable. However the whole place is rundown and obviously suffering from lack or care. The water was missing from all the fountains, the car falling apart with rust and at 10 Cedi per person to go in - just another way of taking money from the... More

The Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, is a must visit site when in Accra. Kwame Nkrumah the first president of Ghana was laid to rest in the mausoleum in the centre. Considering this site is in the centre of the hustle and bustle of the busy city it is still a very calm and serene place to visit. This an ideal... More

First, you pay 10 Cedi to get in. As I wandered about the dry patchy lawns, around the drained fountains, I wandered what was there to see. There is an interesting concrete structure int he middle which is Kwame Nkrumah's mausoleum, but you can see that from the outside and do not need to go in. When I visited, there... More

Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, is one of the major historical site in Ghana. It is located in the capital city, Accra.
