It will not take long to see this magnificent park, but it should certainly be included in one's survey of Accra.

This is very informative and interesting to visit. The museum gives a good history of the country, though the displays are a little bit shabby.

A pleasant way to spend an hour. The park is next to the artisan market so when you're tired of the hard sell this is a pleasent place. The small museum gives a compact history of Ghana's independance.

This memorial is very well done and costs 6 cedi´s entrance. There is a good mix of history, including Nkrumah´s time in exile. For me it was a time to honor the first President of the first free African country and first leader of the All African Union. Thank you, Ghana, for remembering your roots without ignoring the entire story.

Already a fan of Kwame Nkrumah and seeing his tomb and monument was impressive. The museum tells his story visually with some great photos - Nkrumah with Mao Tse Tung, JFK, Queen Elizabeth, Haille Selassie and Castro - great to see.

The fountains and the landscaping were beautiful. The museum was nice. There was some shade to be found in the midday heat.
