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

I loved the museum. Definitely a must-see. Was only disappointed that the coffin at the museum was covered in a thick plastic, so you couldn't really see it. Would be great if it was locked in a glass case instead. Otherwise, loved it.

I enjoyed every moment here. I'm African American and I was more than delighted to visit this park. Ghana is very rich in history. Learning and seeing intimate details of Dr.Kwame Nkrumah's life was priceless. They even have his car in a glass storage. The park itself is nice. I was pleasantly surprised to see peacocks freely walking around and... More

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.
