I visited here as were driving past and wanted to see what the fuss was about. I wasn't let down the history lesson I received was very inspiring and would recommend this place if you have a spare hour or so

It was the first time going with my sons aged 10 and 11. It was interesting for them to see the statues especially the original one which was beheaded. The park itself is a lovely place, serene amidst the hubbub of the city. Lovely to walk in. There is a museum with many images of Kwame Nkrumah which we made... More

This place is a must go to for visitors in Accra. The place also houses the mausoleum of the first President of Ghana, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. The place has still been maintained with a serene atmosphere.

I have been here twice and each time I have learned something new. This is a stunning piece of architecture but it is the museum that is the treasure trove full of articles, his possessions and of course pictures. His life is commemorated however I can't help think that this place should have a place in the country's heart and... More

First of all this is a worthwhile visit. A very pleasant park and the mausoleum of Kwame Nkrumah with a small museum that is very informative and a worth the 20 minutes or so it takes to go around it. However the fountains had been shut off and the pools in need of some cleaning. I'm sure that if the... More

I'm was inspired to see the monument of one of my hero's. We studied the Ghanian leader in school in Jamaica and had him on my bucket list to see one day. The park was well kept, filled with monuments rich with large statues rich in symbolism and worth much filming. The monument (Grave) was well designed (lifting strong hands... More

This attraction needs a visit. The mosealeum built for the 'father' of decolonisation in Africa is a gem and should not be missed
