I was with mixed feelings wondering what I would see. The garden flowers and water fall in front of the park was soothing to my busy mind.

If you find yourself in Accra, Ghana, then aside from leaving immediately, this is probably one of the best options available to you. The museum grounds are poorly maintained, the fountains weren't running when we were there and many of the exhibits are merely Presidents Nkrumah's personal effects (e.g. shirts, desk, car) in depressingly cheap, plastic display cases, but the...

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.

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