Just a few dollars to enter, the museum is sparse, but gives a good history of the country’s history as the first independent sub-Saharan African country. The president and his wife are buried there. Beautiful grounds with trees planted by visiting President.

I enjoyed my visit to this park, memorial, and museum. Entry was 10 cedis. The park is reasonably well maintained and quite beautiful. The small museum on site holds a number of artifacts relating to Nkrumah's life. It is a bit tattered feeling, but the...More
