Great place to visit if you'd like to understand the political origins of Ghana. Be forewarned that the museum is not maintained to "western" standards which is a shame because of the rich history it holds. With that stated I had a superb tour guide who was knowledgeable, amiable and answered every obscure question that I had. Definitely visit the... More

During my stay at Accra I have visited this historical location. A local guide showed me around and explained the museum and the memorial parc to me. This historical location is a "must" for every visitor to Ghana and it helps to understand the past and presence of this wonderful country.

Beautiful garden, not sure if you are allowed to but it would be great for a picnic. The museum is a little basic and one member of staff manning it who is just abrupt. Overall worth a visit and is right next to the Arts and Craft centre which is a great place to haggle and get your gifts and... More

My wife and I toured this site with friends with known heritage in Ghana. I was moved by the history, the grand scale of the new found knowledge. I learned a great deal from this experience.

Disappointing as the park refused to open Saturdays and public holidays, it is clearly not an holiday destination. Travelers should never assume that the facility will always be open.

Exterior and grounds are well laid out, though mausoleum shows it age and retro design. Museum has some great photos of Nkruma on global trips with Zhou En Lai, Mao, and other allies as well as a great shot with JFK. But the surprisingly small space fails in many ways: little to show, no context or commentary, seedy displays--get rid... More

The Park is small but looks nice. In the museum you will get a lot of Information about Kwame Nkruma. Non ghanaians pay 15 GC to enter, thats not much but for that money the could at least keep the park clean. The water is dirty and the fontains are not working.

Very stately and moving. Do some research before you go to appreciate the greatness of this former leader that spurred Ghanas Independence from Britain. I would also travel to the Volta Dam. It's quite a trip, but Nkrumah's greatest public works project and is the largest reservoir on earth.

A very interesting and pensive trip to the memorial park. The tour guide was excellent, and gave us a lot of insights into Dr Nkrumah's life and his time in exile.

The Dr Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park is a sacred place that carries history and a lot of emotions. It is where the 1st President of Independent Ghana and his wife were laid to rest. The architecture of the main building is just so majestic. The park is very clean, well maintained and has a museum and a Gift Shop where... More
