We popped into the NT building as it's impressive architecture we assumed the interior would also be impressive. It's really a mothballed theatre space and wasn't really open. I suspect security staff are allowing opportune tours which you pay for but get very little information...More

Was at the Nationa Theatre, Accra, Ghana for the TED Accra 2015 event. I took an opportunity to go view the national Fontomfrom drum on display at the edifice. So breathtaking and full of history. the history of Ghana's musicology and folklore.
