The last time I visited this site in 2006, it was very well kept. The grounds were clean and well manicured and the fountains were operating. During this visit the landscape was unkempt, the fountains are not working, and there are uncovered work holes on the grounds which could be really dangerous for young children. There have been a couple... More

Beautiful and educational. The staff were very polite and friendly, ready to answer any possible questions. The grass needed a bit of trimming

Entrance fee is 10 GHS for adults. There are interesting trees in the garden, also the main Kwame Nkrumah memorial monument. There is a museum about his life, what he had done, etc. it is pretty similar with Nelson Mandela´s story. and interesting part of Ghana history. But do not expect much from ghanian museum, do not compare with Europe... More

I had a free day in Accra so I walled to the museum. The park was a little rundown and there weren't many people there at all. However, I really learned the history of Ghana and is first president. The fees were nominal and worth it.
