The National museum of Ghana is an important tourist attraction. We recommend it especially for those embarking on educational tour. But it is quite unfortunate that the museum is currently closed indefinitely due to an ongoing renovation.

We stumbled upon this museum as we were on another outing. Though things are not yet perfect here it was a delightful experience. I think we will take friends when they visit next month

To be honest, my experience here was disappointing. I have visited many museums globally, but it was hard for me to tell exactly what was being showcased in this one.

The museum was closed for renovations when we got there, but someone still allowed us in to look around. There was no work going on. There was barely any artefacts on display. The building is extremely small. Hardly museum quality. They said they would be...More
