Not much to see but nice.

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. The park is the final resting place of Ghana first President, Kwame Osagyefo Nkrumah. The serene is very cool and calm good for relaxation. Is an historical place to be whenever you are in Accra.

It is set in a very peaceful area, so a good place to relax in. However, no one appeared to be about so it had an air of disuse about it

I live in Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park is a place i always look forward to visiting. The atmosphere is very serene and a good place to learn about the first president of modern Ghana. At this place you will find the first casket he was buried in. You will also find some of the books written by him at... More

This museum is not only beautifu, it is educational. Learning the history of Ghana and Kwame Nkrumah was very enriching and gave me great admiration for the people and culture.

Ghanaian people are some of the best caring and hospitable I have met around the world on my travels and when you understand where the modern Ghana started then it all falls into place. This is a must for any person who actual cares about Ghana and it's history. I was inspired.

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.
