A Pensive Trip

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.

The water fountains were dry and the small pond leading up to the Masouleum was already green. The park itself was good.. with a lot of sitting area, but the equipments are old and in some cases not functioning.

I was expecting to see a nice monument dedicated to an extremely important figure in Ghana's history. Instead I found a small, run down museum with an interesting collection of items. The artifacts themselves were in terrible shape and it often seemed like they were just grasping at straws to include relevant items in the museum. The park itself wasn't... More
