Great history, good national treasure of a great man with a vision and who was a true an African. Will visit again and recommend visitors to take a tour of the Ghana heritage and illustrious son of Africa.

I like the museum and the story associated with the museum. Good place to take pics and to see the progression of Accra. You also get to see a balanced view of how people received Nkrumah.

One of the few attractions in the city of Accra and an opportunity to learn a little about the history of Ghana.

Small museum, interesting for those who like political history. We do and found it fascinating. Doesn't take long to look around.

A peaceful, tranquil and amazing place to honor a man who contributed so much to the success of Ghana. It's a must see and do hidden in the city. Be sure to visit with someone who knows the history, which will make the visit more memorable. The grounds have beautiful trees and flowers, making it a perfect background for pictures.

I was on visit there for a wedding photo shoot. It's really nice and kept well clean plus entry fee is really cheap for the long time you get to work around in this nice garden atmosphere. The mausoleum is quite nice with artificial waterfall and nice trees and flowers, it could be the ideal location for a wedding reception.... More

To really enjoy this place, you'll need to get someone who knows the history. If you go alone, there is not much on offer. But the place is nice and sometimes not well-kept but a good place to visit. Enjoy Accra!

The Museum and Memorial are educational, inspirational and very uplifting. Kwame Nkrumah was a remarkable person and the museum demonstrates the breadth of his vision.
